The impact of a wish, by Make-A-Wish Germany

Make-A-Wish Germany grants the wishes of eligible children going through life-threatening illnesses in Germany. We achieve this mission through the help of our Affiliates located in Germany.

Our aim to give hope to all children living with a critical illness which will teach them to believe even the seemingly impossible is possible. Once a child applies to get their wish granted, their request is analysed according to the eligibility criteria. If a wish meets the set criteria of Make-A-Wish Germany, the wish journey begins.

We pay close attention when granting these wishes because we realise that critically ill children and their families go through an incredibly challenging time. Read further to know more about how Make-A-Wish Germany grants wishes.

Grant life-changing wishes

This is what makes the wish journey special

Once a child gets diagnosed with a life-threatening illness and contacts us to grant their wish, we study their case with complete transparency. This helps us provide them with the best care possible. We understand that when a child or family contacts us, they need help. Therefore, with the help of our donors, we have successfully granted the wishes of numerous critically ill children globally.

These children often remain deprived of a normal childhood like other healthy children. This often results in a lack of confidence in such kids. Most of their time is spent at hospitals, and they have little hope as to whether they will be able to live the life they want.

Germany grants the wishes of these children so they can hope for a better future. Many children dream about becoming police officers or pilots throughout their childhood. Make-A-Wish helps these kids in every way possible to achieve their dreams. The children feel more confident once they receive such love and attention. This results in a positive impact on their emotional well being and can speed up their recovery process.

The wish journey of Make-A-Wish Germany


Make-A-Wish Germany grants the wishes of children living with critical health conditions come true. Our mission is to grant their wishes so they can regain the strength and resilience to fight through their challenges.

Make-A-Wish acknowledges the struggle of critically ill children and their families. The wish journey helps these children make precious memories with their loved ones and forget about their struggles.

Who is eligible for a wish?

Make-A-Wish grants the wishes of children between the ages of 3 and 18. The children define their health condition once they apply for a wish. The physician appointed for their treatment studies their case with great care. This helps us determine whether the child is eligible and meets the criteria for the wish journey of Make-A-Wish Germany.
