Make-A-Wish®Italia Onlus

Fidenza Village supports Make-A-Wish®Italia Onlus

Make-A-Wish®Italia Onlus grants life-changing wishes to children between 3 and 17 of age, suffering from severe illnesses. Their mission is to make every eligible child’s wish come true, and make the child live an intense emotional experience, which according to principles of positive psychology is complementary to medical care. Research shows that children who had their wish come true become more resilient and acquire better physical and emotional strength in their battle against the disease.

Make-A-Wish Italia was founded in 2004 by Fabio e Sune Frontani in memory of their daughter Carlotta, who passed at the age of 10 due to a serious illness.

The Association, based in Genoa and with office in Milan, is present all over Italy through a network of 230 volunteers, working closely to the most important children’s hospitals of the country. Together with its volunteers and donors, Make-A-Wish Italia has granted over 2300 wishes until today.

Make-A-Wish Italia is part of Make-A-Wish International, founded in the United States in 1980, and today present in 50 countries around the world, counting more than 43.000 volunteers and 500.000 wishes granted.
