The Wish Journey is a program run by Make-A-Wish Peru that grants wishes to children living with critical illnesses.

This is what makes the Wish Journey special

The Wish Journey is a unique program with the aim to bring happiness and positivity to children that are facing challenges in their lives. It is made possible by a dedicated group of individuals who work together to turn the wish into a reality. These include volunteers who help plan and execute the wish, as well as donors who generously contribute to make the wish granting process possible. Everyone involved in the Wish Journey plays an important role in creating a lasting and meaningful experience for the wish child.

The Wish Journey of Make-A-Wish Peru


Make-A-Wish Peru aims to help children living with a critical illness and their families experience hope, strength, and joy through the Wish Journey. The process starts when a child is referred to the organization by a healthcare professional, parent, guardian or someone else familiar with the child’s medical condition. Once deemed eligible, the child is then paired with a wish granter who works with them to identify and plan for their heartfelt wish.

The wish can be anything from a trip to a dream location or meeting a celebrity, to receiving a special gift or having a customized playroom. Make-A-Wish Peru makes every effort to make the Wish Journey a meaningful and memorable experience for the child and their family, believing that it can have a lasting impact on their emotional well-being.

Who is eligible for a wish?

Children who are between the ages of 3 and 17 and have been diagnosed with a life-threatening illness may be eligible to receive a wish from Make-A-Wish Peru. In order to be considered for a wish, the child’s medical condition must be verified by a healthcare professional. This verification not only helps to confirm eligibility, but also to identify any limitations on the child’s ability to participate in the Wish Journey.
