Make-A-Wish The Netherlands sounds gong on World Wish Day


CEO of Make-A-Wish The Netherlands, Peter Douwes, sounds the gong for World Wish Day together with volunteers and area ambassadors. The bells are also sounded for this occasion at the other Euronext exchange locations.

Every year on the 29th of April Make-A-Wish celebrates World Wish Day all over the world. In 1980 the first wish was granted to the 7-years old Chris, he suffered from leukemia. The whole village contributed enthusiasm to fulfil his dearest wish: being a cop. Make-A-Wish The Netherlands is founded in 1989 and annually fulfills more than 500 dearest wishes of children between 3 and 18 years with a life-threatening illness. Fulfilling a wish means a world of difference for these children and provides them and their family with hope and strength for the future.
