Everybody has a wish

Wishes of seriously ill children fulfilled by the Golden Fish.

The Story of the Golden Fish
 

The Story of the Golden Fish

Let us tell you the story of how the Golden Fish grants wishes of seriously ill children.

Whenever kids are ill, their parents do everything they can to get proper care for them. All of the focus is on medical care.

No wonder they have no more means or energy to spare for anything that is not really urgent!

The Golden Fish is there to help kids forget that they are ill and allow them to enjoy – together with their loved ones – moments of joy and happiness.

Because we all have wishes, don´t we...

Every child dreams of something else as there is no limit to a child´s fantasies.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Want to become an Indian or a race car driver?

Dream of exploring distant places?

Or maybe you simply want something?

It could be that you want to meet with someone you admire?

Or you wish to make someone else happy?

The Golden Fish grants one wish of any seriously ill child from 3 to 18 years.

We understand that having a healthy child is your greatest wish. Unfortunately, that does not fall within our powers. We do not raise money for families or children, and we cannot provide medical devices or aids.

 

Who helps the Golden Fish?

We commit to fulfil your wishes caringly, with dedication and compassion. Do not hesitate to contact our team.

From the Life of Golden Fish

Do you even realise, what you're doing? Do you know how much adrenaline and endorphins this boy just got thanks to you? Do you know how excited is he going to be for the next seven months and how he is going to talk about this with everyone? No IV fluids could ever recreate these kinds of positive feelings. MUDr. Pavel Timr, doctor in charge

It's a break, away from the hospital setting into a world of fantasies and adventures. That's how I see it from my point of view as a mother. Hana Spielvoglová, mother of a dreamer

In the period of 2015 until 2017, Golden Fish managed 'swum' its way
into 66 Czech and Moravian wards and fulfilled the dreams and wishes of 197 children.
