At Make-A-Wish Colombia, we understand that children living with a life-threatening illness often spend a lot of time in health clinics. These children have specific and extraordinary desires, and we prioritize granting them. We believe that granting these wishes can offer emotional support that can enhance their healing process. We aim to grant wishes for these children and deliver unique experiences and moments of happiness, which can become a part of the healing process by bringing positive energy and strength during a challenging time.

The magic of the Wish Journey
Make-A-Wish Colombia works to bring joy and happiness to children living with a critical illness. Our aim is to grant these children’s wishes and provide them with memorable moments and experiences that help them to think less about their difficulties during trying times. We believe that granting their wishes can give these children a sense of confidence and fortitude to face their challenges and continue their courageous journey. By creating long-standing memories with their loved ones through activities they cherish, we hope to bring some light into the lives of these children and their families.
Make-A-Wish Colombia: the steps of a Wish Journey
Make-A-Wish Colombia grants wishes to children living with critical illnesses to bring hope, strength, and joy during a challenging time. The Wish Journey can have a positive impact on the child’s mental health by strengthening their hope and providing a sense of satisfaction and positivity.
For a child to be granted a wish, they can be referred by a qualified health worker, family member, legal guardian or other relative. One of our wish granters will meet with the child and their family after verifying their eligibility to discuss their heartfelt wish. The wish granter will then set up a strategy and consult resources to make the wish come true. Through this process, Make-A-Wish Colombia aims to provide a meaningful and unforgettable experience for the child and their family.
Wish Journey: the criteria
To be considered eligible for a wish by Make-A-Wish Colombia, children must meet the following requirements:
- They must be between 3 and 17 years old.
- They must be diagnosed with a life-threatening illness, such as a progressive, degenerative, or malignant illness that requires medical attention.
- They must be able to participate in the Wish Journey.
A healthcare professional will review the child’s medical information and determine if they are medically eligible for the program. Upon approval, a child will be matched with a wish granter who will assist them in discovering their deepest desire and creating a long standing experience.
