Make-A-Wish Germany fulfills the long-desired wishes of children and young adults between the ages of three and 18 years, who suffer from life-threatening illnesses. With this, they and their families experience happy and unforgettable moments, which give them hope, strength and joy of life to carry them as they fight against their illness. For iGive merchant partner, Condor Airlines, it is a particular honor to be able to make a small contribution.
In 2016, to celebrate its 60th anniversary, Germany’s most popular leisure airline flew at least one child to a dream destination for a short period of time out of their everyday life, which is too oft determined by illness.
A few trips included:
The 11-year-old Tomàs, who is suffering from cancer, and was happy to visit a sloth farm in Costa Rica. In June, 5-year-old Alicia, who is suffering from cystic fibrosis, finally visited her grandmother in the Dominican Republic. The next dream that Condor fulfilled in cooperation with Make-A-Wish in August, belonged to Yasin from Munich. The 14-year-old, who is ill with leukemia, simply wanted to spend a carefree holiday with his family in Majorca. “With all my heart I wish for a hotel with a swimming pool”, said Yasin, full of anticipation for the journey.
