Make-A-Wish Philippines is an organization that grants the wishes of children with critical illnesses. Recently, a wish granting activity for around 70 attendees was organized with partners, realme and Nissan. These activities may be quite a feat to organize especially during the ber months, when the beneficiaries (or “wish kids”) are undergoing their last few medical treatments for the year. However, thanks to the help of bright stars — volunteers, staff, parents, and sponsoring partners — that aligned, the wish kids experienced a truly memorable event.

Through the “realme With You” annual campaign for this season of giving, realme granted the wishes of 30 kids. 15 of those were wish kids from the provinces around the Philippines. The other 15 were kids from Metro Manila and got to experience an exciting day at Art In Island – an interactive digital museum in Cubao, Quezon City. The wish kids spent a day with company volunteers, exploring the museum and taking photos. They were also surprised with a unique dessert experience with an ice cream freezer powered by Nissan LEAF – a battery-electric powered compact car.
15 wishes for gadgets, such as realme C51 mobile phones and realme Pads, were granted at the end of the day. Many Filipino wish kids asked for gadgets such as these either because of online school or because they would like to have a source of leisure time during long days at the hospital.

A wish-come-true can be a turning point in the life of a child with a critical illness. It can be the spark of hope that helps them look forward to more positive experiences in the future. Thanks to realme and Nissan, that spark was ignited for 30 wish kids, leaving them with uplifting memories that will become their source of strength as they continue to bravely fight against their illnesses and undergo medical treatment.
