“As a Make-A-Wish volunteer, delivering a wish and witnessing the delight and happiness it brings to the children and their families, is truly heart warming. And while it is an honour and privilege to play a small part in their joy, what stands out more is what they teach you.”
– Susy, volunteering for over 20 years
