Mission of Make-A-Wish®

We grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.

History of Make-A-Wish® Malaysia

The Malaysian affiliate was launched in 2010 and on average we grant two new wishes every month. We constantly receive new referrals and with only one staff member, we rely on our dedicated volunteers to help us grant wishes and raise funding for our mission. We currently have 30 volunteers and the majority of them are trained as Wish Granters.

Founder of Make-A-Wish Malaysia, Sandra Kirwan, expresses her excitement for the new affiliate:

“It is a great privilege for Malaysia to become the 35th affiliate of Make-A-Wish Foundation International. Becoming a member of the Make-A-Wish family provides us with access to all the knowledge, experience and resources of this prestigious global organisation. Such tremendous support will enable Make-A-Wish Malaysia to enrich the lives of many children with life-threatening medical conditions through wish granting. We are delighted and honoured to be part of such a well renowned global wish granting foundation.

I would like to express my sincere thanks to the following who helped me achieve affiliation… Datin Syarifah Farah Hussain, Roslie Sulle, Najuib Malik, Maeve Power, Jann Muir, Kathy Kaiser, Annette Grubb, Patricia Reid, Iris Laughton and Darina Walsh. Also many thanks to our Board Members and Volunteers who have worked tremendously in establishing the Malaysian Affiliate in 2010.
