Text WISH to 70111 to donate £3 a month
Wish child Shiffa with friends and family in her new bedroom

Shiffa has been living with type 1 diabetes since she was 4. But her family knew something else was wrong when she started losing her eyesight.

After lengthy investigations and referrals to several different hospitals, Shiffa was diagnosed with Wolfram syndrome, a rare genetic condition, at just 9 years old. The diagnosis was heart-breaking for Shiffa's family – especially as Shiffa’s brother has now been diagnosed with the same condition.

There's no cure for Wolfram syndrome, so Shiffa is taking each day as it comes.

Growing up, Shiffa had been sharing a small room and bed with her younger sister Sumayyah – so when she turned to us, her wish was to have a magical bedroom makeover! So we took donations from people like you, added a touch of Make-A-Wish magic, and got to work transforming Shiffa’s room.

We need your help to grant another child's wish.

"The best moment in the process was when the room was revealed – Shiffa walked in and said it was like being in a 5* hotel!" dad Jahangir told us after Shiffa’s room had been finished. In fact, Shiffa was so proud of her new room that she put on an opening ceremony to show her friends and family!

"The wish really lifted Shiffa's spirits – she feels like she has more control as she had her own say in the room and it was brought to life, which has really helped her confidence," continued Jahangir.

Although Shiffa’s eyesight has deteriorated, she can see the walls and decorations up close. She now looks forward to spending time in her room and finds it an amazing place to relax.


To ensure no child is kept waiting unnecessarily for their wish, the funds you donate may not be spent directly on this specific wish. But rest assured, your money will be spent on wishgranting costs to help us grant a wish to one of the hundreds of children who will turn to us this year. All costs shown are illustrative – they are the estimates we use for our own budgeting purposes and may vary from the final costs paid. All children listed will receive their wish – if insufficient funds are raised through this site we will use general raised funds.
