Founded in 2005, 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. 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 all hospitals across the country. Wishes are served without regard to nationality, religion or socio-economic background. To date, Tamanna has granted 2050 wishes at a rate of three per week. A wish granted is a powerful tool to help spirits rise, bringing a ray of sunshine into lives dominated by pain. A wish is that magic touch that will turn a suffering child's tears into laughter.

The procedure begins with us sending one of our enthusiastic members to learn the child's one true wish, after having been contacted by one of the fifteen hospitals we serve across the Lebanese territory. These passionate volunteers connect with wish children and help explore their imaginations for the experience that will delight and inspire them. Our wish team creates an unforgettable experience driven by the child's creativity. It's an incredible experience that enriches not just the lives of the children and their families, but often an entire community. 100% of donations go towards granting the wishes of children. We work very hard to keep our operating expenses at their lowest . These expenses are fully covered by sponsored events. Price Waterhouse Coopers (PWC) are in charge of auditing our accounts with the highest standards of governance and full transparency.
