About Make-A-Wish Singapore
Make-A-Wish Foundation® Singapore is part of the World’s largest Wish granting organization which began in 1980 in Phoenix, Arizona after a team of people granted the wish of Chris.
Chris was a sweet seven-year old boy diagnosed with leukaemia, and he wanted very much to "catch the bad guys". With the help of the local police, Chris’ wish was granted! He had an amazing day riding in a police helicopter, sworn in as an honorary patrolman, wearing a custom-made uniform, and a chance to show off his biking skills. The people involved in his wish were so moved by the experience that they pledged to continue to “share the power of a wish”.
Since the granting of Chris’ wish, the Make–A-Wish Foundation® America was founded, and grew into a huge International organization with chapters all over the world. Since the inception of Make-A-Wish Singapore in 2002, we have granted over 1,400 transformational wishes for children with life-threatening medical conditions. We are supported by over 200 volunteers, 8 board members and 10 staff, and are the only Wish granting organization in Singapore.
