Ishtiaq Baig Man Behind Make-A-Wish Foundation …. Giving Hope, Strength and Joy

Make a Wish Foundation will expand its activities to Punjab and other cities of Pakistan shortly so that each terminally ill child can be benefitted.
This was stated by


Founding President of the MAW Foundation Pakistan while exclusively talking to nayyab sarhandi.
He said “The main objective of the MAW Pakistan is to enter into the terminally child’s life and bring magic and joy to them”. We know we cannot add days to their life but we certainly can add life to their days”.
It’s an affiliate member country of MAWFI and dedicated to granting the most cherished wishes of the terminally ill children in Pakistan. While replying to a question that how this foundation was formed he informed that ”On a business trip to USA I came to know about the organization, I read about it and very touched by the unique work the organization is doing. Through my untiring efforts I have convince the higher officials of MAW Foundation to grant affiliation to Pakistan. It took me three years and many trips to USA to motivate them and at the end I was successful. MAW Pakistan became the 33rd Affiliate country”. He further said that the foundation have so far granted more than 100 wishes including the wishes of two terminally ill Children who wanted to see the Prime Minister and Chief Justice of Pakistan.
While informing about the children wishes he said “As compared to the wishes of the children of European and American countries which cost them about US$10,000 per wish, the wishes of our Pakistani terminally ill children are very small such as having TV. Mobile, Bicycle, new clothes, birthday parties. Some children also wishes to meet their favourite celebrities like Javed Miandad, Humayoun Saeed, Omar Sharif etc”.
While replying to the question that how you come to know about children wishes he lauded the efforts of volunteers, he said “More than 50 active volunteers of all age group under the policy of MAWFI, visits different hospitals to identify the wish children and also these children are referred to us by the Hospital.”
“Ishtiaq further revealed that organization relies on the generosity of
individuals, organizations and corporations to fund our mission. We also request individual person to adopt the wishes of the wish children posted on our website”.
He thanked all member s of MAW Foundation including Mr Saeed- uz -Zaman Siddiqui,Former Chief Justice of Pakistan, Dr Pirzada Qasim, Mr S M Muneer, Dr Mirza Ikhtiar Baig, Mr Yasin Malik, Dr Faiz Muhammad, Haji Masood Parekh and others and has said that without their support this journey would not be possible.
Ishtaiq asked all philanthropists to kindly join hands with MAW to grant the wishes of many terminally children whose wishes are yet fulfilled by MAW. From the magic and power of having their most cherished wish granted, these children are given hope, strength and much joy.

    Its a trumendous effort by MAW for a 15 y cancer child to fulfill his wish to serve army for one day, its really a ray of hope in the darkness of poverty & class differences of society , a sigh of relief for those who can address to a humble heart which at least can beat in their rythym.
    i hope MAW will play an aggressive role for recent on going flood victims.
    Wishes all the best for thier cause & effort to realize the people about the social values of humanity.
