Volunteer & Behind-the-Scenes Stories



Check back here for features on our volunteers, and some behind-the-scenes stories and photographs of our wishes, events and operations.

Our volunteers have been referred to as our backbone and the quiet achievers of Make-A-Wish Malaysia. Without their strong support in the frontline organising magical wishes, or behind-the scenes, lending their skills to our fundraising events, we will not be able to continue fulfilling our mission here in Malaysia.

We do not often get the opportunity to acknowledge the contributions of our volunteers, so it was a treat for us to do that during WishBall 2014, with many of our Wish Granters taking the stage on that evening.

In her speech, our CEO, Irene Tan said, “We are very fortunate to have so many dedicated people who volunteer their time with us, and having worked personally with most of them, I can tell you that they are truly remarkable and kind-hearted individuals.”

She also highlighted two volunteers in particular, who have contributed tremendously in their respective areas in 2014. Jess Phang was acknowledged as the volunteer with most wishes granted, and Molly Ooi was recognised for her work in the area of fundraising.

Thank you AMAZING volunteers! We could not have done it without all of you.
