Football star Cristiano Ronaldo and a sick child
Tamanna is a non-profit organization that grants the wishes of children with critical illnesses. Turning a wish into reality empowers a child to combat his illness, giving him hope and happiness in times of great stress and hardship.
The question Tamanna asks the child is: If you could have just one wish, what would it be? Wishes vary from having a particular toy, to meeting a celebrity, traveling or becoming someone the child hopes to be as an adult. Tamanna tries to be limited only by a child’s imagination.
Tamanna currently grants an average of three wishes a week. To date, the association has granted the wishes of more than 300 children.
Any child between 3 and 18 years with a critical illness, residing or being treated in Lebanon, is eligible for a wish. Today, Tamanna serves 15 hospitals across the country. Wishes are served without regard to nationality, religion or socio-economic background.
