What they do

 

Make-A-Wish Foundation of Switzerland & Liechtenstein grants the most heartfelt wishes of children aged between 3 and 18 living with a serious medical condition to give them Hope, Strength and Joy.

A child’s life shouldn’t be about illness, hospitals and diagnosis – it should be about wonder, joy and hope.

Sometimes, when you are really not well, your dreams become even more important than ever. At Make-A-Wish we work to make these dreams come true for children who have been robbed of their right to a carefree childhood.

They ensure that every child, in the company of their family, experiences the most magical of moments, because, as the author Cesar Pavese wrote, "We do not remember days, we remember moments".

Make-A-Wish is all about providing unique and treasured moments to very ill children. Moments which will allow them to forget their illness for a while and provide them with beautiful and cherished memories.

Getting tips from Roger Federer, panning for gold, flying over the Alps in a helicopter, seeing the sea for the first time, meeting a celebrity hero, being a Chef for a day, or meeting a Nobel physicist at Cern; our wishes are unique and, most importantly, magical.

They work closely with doctors and healthcare professionals throughout Switzerland who refer the children to us. We know what wishes do, and this is the driving force behind why we continue to do what we do to reach out to more and more ill children in Switzerland.

 

Who they are

Make-A-Wish Switzerland was founded in the summer of 2003. They are a financially and legally independent Swiss foundation supervised by the Federal Department of Home Affairs. They are a small team based in Nyon surrounded by a solid team of 50 volunteers throughout Switzerland.

They finance their work through individual and corporate donations, corporate partnerships, their signature event, events and support from associations, service clubs, and schools. The Foundation also relies on in-kind contributions (goods and services) to support their wishes.

 

Make-A-Wish International

In 1980, a little American boy named Chris, who was very ill with leukaemia, dreamed of being a police officer. The granting of his wish served as the inspiration to a special group of volunteers who formed an organization to provide magical experiences for other ill children.

Since that day, the organisation has grown to cover 48 countries and has granted over 350'000 wishes throughout the world thanks to dedicated staff and over 35’000 volunteers.
