Make-A-Wish Foundation® of India is a non-profit organization established in 1996 and since then has fulfilled wishes of 52,710 children diagnosed with a critical illness, mostly Cancer. This year they are aiming to grant wishes of 7,500 such children.


As part of the CSR initiative at IBG, we have partnered with Make-A-Wish India, on a long term basis till the year 2020, to help them accomplish the goal to grant the wish of the 75,000th child by 2020, which is their silver jubilee year. Make-A-Wish India is approved by Ministry of Corporate Affairs and can provide you benefits under the 2% CSR initiative.

Doctors have shared that granting the wish of such a child, helps restore hope, strength and joy and helps the child respond better to the medical treatment and reduce the drop-out rate at hospitals. A nominal donation of Rs. 1 lac can help grant wishes of 12 children.

For children battling life-threatening illnesses the joys of childhood are replaced with a daily battle for survival, painful treatment and medication and endless rounds of hospitals. The fulfilment of the most cherished wish of a child who has very little hope of enjoying a normal, healthy life not only gives happiness and joy to him/her but also has a therapeutic effect on the child. Doctors have often reported an improvement in the child’s physical condition, after the fulfilment of his / her dearest wish

We urge you to consider support to this unique cause by adopting wishes or under your CSR program. Write to Deepak S Bhatia, CEO at Make-A-Wish India on for any further information.
