Make-A-Wish Luxembourg, a not-for-profit granting the wishes of children and young people with life-threatening medical conditions, has rebranded.
The NGO, which was affiliated with Make-A-Wish International has struck out on its own, and since Thursday has operated independently as “Kanner Wonsch”, roughly translated as Wish Kids.
The voluntary organisation said it is currently working on granting the wishes of five young people, the youngest of whom is three. Sharleen, who suffers from shaken baby syndrome, will get a dedicated sensory space. Two children with brain tumours and two with leukemia will also see their wishes come true.
Since the organisation was founded in Luxembourg in 2012, it has granted the wishes of 21 young people aged from 3 to 18. Wishes have ranged from being a super hero for the day (see video) to driving a (remote-controlled) car.
