VIVIEN (16, NYÍRADONY)

Even though Vivien is a shy, faint-hearted young woman, when her desease came back, she was brave enough to fight the new barriers.

Due to the fact that every two weeks, she has to go through some treatments in the hospital, she was really in need of a new computer. The computer would not only provide some fun in her daily life, but also would be a huge help in the field of her studies, as she is studying a lot from home.

She was very happy when she received the gift. She tried to hide her happiness, but it was more than clear for everyone: she IS happy.


In the name of Vivien, we would like to thank the students of the British International School Budapest and our private donors for the outstanding donations. We were able to fulfill Vivien’s dream with their help.

The 9-year -old Amira loves reading, watching movies, and playing with LEGO. Her favourite books and movies are the Harry Potter series.

Since she had discovered Harry Potter LEGO on the internet , all she kept dreaming about was to build the Hogwarts Castle, the Great Hall, or the Clock Tower.

So naturally, she wished for a Harry Potter LEGO.

Her joy was boundless, when she received the much-wanted toy.

Dear Amira, we hope that you will enjoy your gift and wish you a fast recovery!

MARTINA (18, NAGYCENK)



The wish of the 18-year-old Martina was a laptop to be used primarily for communication with her classmates and learning.
Soon, she is going to Essen for a serious treatment, so it became important that her wish should be fulfilled as soon as possible.

Martina was so happy when we informed her that the gift of the Magic Lamp Foundation was waiting for her.

Her wish was fulfilled at the pulmonology department of the Markusovszky Hospital in Szombathely, in the presence of her doctors.

It was a heartwarming moment to see Martina's happy face!

Many thanks for the support of our private sponsors, among them to the pupils and teachers of The British International School Budapest.

Máté (4, Budapest)


Máté likes to play with LEGO blocks, so no wonder that his wish was a LEGO train.

As he has been treated these days at the 2nd Pediatric clinic of the Semmelweiss University we decided to visit him there. We were told, that the boy is very shy, so we just simply put the huge box on his bed.

Shy or not, he reached immediately for the box quite excited. He promised us that at home his very first "action" will be to assamble the train and the rails.

Seeing the pictures we know for sure, that the present was a real hit with Máté. We wish him a complete recovery!



We would like to thank our private supporters, among them the students of, their parents and teachers of the American International School of Budapest for their decade long support!

Bence (15, Nyírkércs)


Bence goes to secondary school and like almost every teenager likes computer games very much.

He is a forethoughtful type and thinks of his health long sighted. As he plays sometimes for hours with or against his online friends he asked for a comfortable gamer seat from Magic Lamp.

We are sure that he will be able to take advantage of his new gamer seat for both playing and learning better.

We wish him a fast recovery and success in both field.


We would like to thank Corinthia Budapest and its gracious guests for their generousity, attention and selfless help, that made this wish come true.

Katrina Beáta (5, Szekszárd)


Katrina asked for a Mercedes 300S electric ride-on small car from the Wonder Lamp. She had no idea why she had to come down to the basement of their family house.

When she saw the small car she was smiling and looking at me curiously. I told Katrina that the present from the Magic Lamp had arrived and asked her to try it. Due to the rainy, bad weather, that time she could drive only in the small basement. She was immediately very good at driving, reversing and turning. The lights were on and we were listening to the car radio.

Giving a big joy, present of the Wonder Lamp Foundation got to the right place again. We hope Katrina will enjoy the small car outdoor, too.
We could manage to bring a big smile to the face of a sick child once again!

Diána (16, Balatonfenyves)



Diana loves nature and water, which is understandable, as she is living in a settlement nearby Lake Balaton. She was thinking about a lot what to wish from the Wonder Lamp Foundation and finally she decided to ask for an inflatable kayak that she can enjoy with her family.

At this time the photo was taken by the kayak’s box, but Diana can hardly wait for spring, for the good weather to test the double kayak.

We wish her a wonderful time in advance!

CSONGOR (12, URAIÚJFALU)


Csongor wished for an electric scooter from Csodalámpa, he already has a splendid bike that he’s using to travel in the town.

We soon acquired the roller that he was incredibly excited for, he wanted to give it a go, which soon he was able to do in their backyard. If the weather is suitable, then he can already use it to go to his music school, only he shouldn’t leave the helmet at home.

We hope you can use the scooter in a good health for a long time!

We thank our private sponsors, including the teachers, students (and their parents) of the American International School of Budapest, for making Csongors wish come true.

Brigitta (7, Barcs)


Brigitta wished for a bicycle from Csodalámpa, she didn’t know about my arrival as her father kept it a secret. She came out into the garden after her father and he watched the bike that I brought with me with great amazement.
She had boundless excitement on her and immediately started unwrapping the gift. I mounted the basket on the bicycle and set the seat to the correct height and turned on the lights.

She really wanted to try her new bike, however it was raining heavily outside. So, she tried it in the kitchen, even if it was only for 3 meters…

She thanks everyone for this great gear shifting bike. Achieving once more huge pleasure to an ill child, another gift from Csodalámpa foundation found it's perfect place.

We thank our private sponsors, including the teachers, students (and their parents) of the American International School of Budapest, for making Brigitta's wish come true.

ATTILA TAMÁS (10, MISKOLC)


Attila was in hospital a lot this year and his condition got worse. I asked him, if he could have a wish what would it be? What happened next, was a tremendous moment for me, one that I will never forget. His wish was simply; to heal!
After both her mother and I started shedding tears, we put ourselves together and continued the conversation. Finally, we found out he had another big wish, and that would be a Hoverboard.

When the new vehicle first arrived to me, I agreed with Attila’s mom so that we don’t tell him about fulfilling the wish. The next day, Attila only knew that there would be a blood test. I did not tell that his wish would be fulfilled as I thought the surprise would be bigger.

He was very surprised that we had fulfilled his wish so soon and immediately unboxed it. We quickly assembled the electric miracle so he can try it: he sped up and down in the corridors of the hospital.
Then he gave the board it to me to try: I already had difficulties with getting on, but Attila was thrilled and very happy with his gift.

We thank our private sponsors, including the teachers, students and parents of the American International School of Budapest, for helping us to make Attila's wish come true.

LILI (14, SALGÓTARJÁN)


Lili is an open-minded nice girl, who had no idea that her wish would come true today.

Her mother told her they would go to a clinic in Budapest for a bone density test.

Lili beleived so until the very last minute, then it was a big surprise when she entered the room where we (me and my colleagues) greeted her and gave the brand new iPad to her. (With the approval of Lili’s mother, I had invited some colleagues from FirstMed to enjoy that lovely moment )

The surprise and her joy were limitless!


We would like to thank the management of Firstmed-FMC Kft. for their support and their representatives for the personal attendance.

ALEXANDRA (16, SZOLNOK)

I had already contacted Szandi and her mother, Barbara a few weeks prior to the journey and they had been looking forward to travelling to Paris.

I met them at the airport on Friday morning. Both of them were very excited about the long-awaited trip, especially Sandy, because it was the first time that she had been flown.
Szandi’s wish was to see the Eiffel Tower. She was very happy when I told her that her dream would come true soon. Szandi really enjoyed the flight.

After arriving to Paris we had a walk int he afternoon: we saw the Notre Dame, the City Hall, H'otel de Ville, Chatelet district, and we were walking along the riverside of the Seine.

Second day we were also very busy, we were glad to see many sights. Our sightseeing tour began with the Louvre Museum, then we visited the Saint-Germain-l'Auxerrois de Paris Churh, and the Arc de Triomphe Monument. We went along the Champs-Élysées, then – after a long but pleasant walk – we arrived to the Eiffel Tower and we spent the whole afternoon there. Actually, it was Szandi’s dream and she really enjoyed it.

We were looking at the sight not only from outside, we also went up to the tower, where we had a panoramic view to Paris.

We closed the day with a sightseeing bus and crossed the Alexander Bridge.

Next day we also tried to see many things. We visited Montmarte and the Basilica of the Sacré Coeur, then we explored the area by a cozy walk.
Besides the sightseeing, we had time to look around and Szandi got a bag and a bracelet as souvenirs from Paris.

Finally, we were walking along the riverside of the Seine once again saying goodbye to the Notre Dame, then we saw Saint-Chapelle.

I’m sure that Szandi received a lifetime experience and I think she will always remember of it.

Many thanks for the support of Firstmed-FMC Kft.,
Mr. Peter Freed and the guests of the Best of Budapest Gala and also for the help of our private supporters.

VIKTOR (9, ZALAEGERSZEG)

It is not easy to decide what to wish if you have only one choice ... Viktor and his family have been thinking a lot about how Magic Lamp could please the big boy with sincere joy.

Viktor has been playing guitar for a year, he is singing and music means everything for him, primarily Ed Sheeran's music.

It is not a wonder when he learnt that his favorite musician will perform at Sziget Festival, he said he would like to listen to the concert and maybe meet him ... Of course, he knew from the very beginning that this second wish was truly a dream.

We cut our axe into a big tree when we committed to fulfill this wish ...

Since HE Iain Lindsay, Ambassador of Great-Britain knows very well the mission of our foundation, and already helped in realizing several beautiful dreams, we have asked him and his colleagues’ help to fulfill this wish. For a couple of weeks, we were very excited, doing lots of organization, waiting for the good news that it is going to work.

Viktor placed confidence in us all along the way that we will succeed. (We were also trusting, but we knew good luck is also needed to fulfill such a wish.)

The eagerly awaited meeting took place on 7th August, just before Ed Sheeran's concert.

Viktor was genuinely prepared, made a beautiful drawing for his favorite musician and he also wrote to him in English.

Mr. Sheeran, Ed greeted us very kindly and was talking to Victor after a couple of minutes as if he'd known him for a long time. The big boy's most important question he wanted to get an answer for was; how to compose music. Ed only replied that he doesn’t even know, the music just coming from himself. This is called talent - I whispered to Viktor.

/ 4



Of course, the common photos could not be missed either, Viktor told that he also learns to play the guitar and said that Ed made him the happiest child in the world by letting his dream come true.

I tried to translate among them as well as possible. Honestly, sometimes it was difficult because I was swallowing my tears while seeing Victor's face and what this meeting meant to him, seeing his drawing and reading what he wrote on the back of the drawing in English.

I'm sure the meeting will contribute to Viktor's recovery, and he confirmed this to me as well. I hope one day he will be the star musician on the stage and we will be there among the fans.

I am very grateful for being part of another Magic Lamp miracle and getting known you, Viktor. Wishing you a full recovery as soon as possible!

On behalf of Viktor, we would like to thank for the support to Mr. Ed Sheeran and his manager, to HE Iain Lindsay, the Ambassador of Great Britain, to his colleagues at the British Embassy, and of course to the Sziget’s management, and also to our private supporters, without whom this dream could not have come true.

VERONIKA (12, BUDAPEST)

The seemingly simple question of what you wish for, asked by the Magic Lamp volunteers, is actually not that easy to answer when you can only make one wish.

Veronika also had to think about it for a bit who or what her wish would be. Naturally, the pondering did not last long, she wished to meet her favorite and role model, Ed Sheeran.

As His Excellency Ambassador Iain Lindsay knows the mission of our foundation well and has already helped turn several wishes into reality, we asked for his and his colleagues support with this wish. We organized and kept our fingers crossed for several weeks waiting to hear if it would be possible.

Prior to her serious medical condition, Veronika was an active gymnast and dancer on a high level. She has already liked Ed's music back then and kept listening to his songs during her treatments. She knows most lyrics by heart, which I was able to witness as I sat next to her during the concert.

She went into the meet up well prepared. She had her questions ready for Ed and practiced her English so she could talk with him.

The meet up took place on August 7 before the concert at the Sziget festival. I don't even know who was more excited, her or me. Roni had all her questions written down and practiced her English until the last minute so that everything would go smoothly. I was only worried if there would be enough time for her to ask all the questions. Needless to say, she spoke to the singer, who welcomed her warmly, with amazing confidence.

Veronika also made a blue bracelet as a gift, which Ed put on immediately and we saw that he kept on wearing it during his performance. For me, the most touching moment was not even when they took a picture together or hugged each other, but when Roni said goodbye with the following words:

- Meeting you was an experience for a lifetime and I will always remember it. I hope that it was the same for you and that you will remember me as well.

The reply was another hug from the bottom of his heart and a sincere smile.

I believe that this experience will greatly help Roni to recover faster. I am grateful for having been part of another Magic Lamp wonder and for meeting you, Roni. Get well soon!

In Roni's name, we would like to thank Mr Ed Sheeran and his manager, His Excellency Iain Linday, the British Ambassador to Hungary, the staff at the British Embassy as well as the management of Sziget and our supporters, without whom this dream could not have become reality.

NÁNDOR (16, DEBRECEN)



Nándi is a modest, decent boy. He comes from a cheerful musician family. He is also a talented musician performing with family members on weddings and other occasions. Understandably he wished for a pair of active speakers to exploit fully the capabilities of his synthethiser and enhance their performances.

He was all smiles when he got his present and of course plugged in and tried sount of the new speakers.

We wish Nandor a full recovery!

KRISZTOFER (12, KECSKEMÉT)



Krisztofer was at the clinic for his last treatment when his wish was fulfilled and he became the proud owner of a Samsung smart watch. He was asleep when we arrived, but his mother quickly woke him as he had been asleep for a while already. We waited for a little bit to allow him to wake up fully and for him to realize that his wish was about to become reality.

He was ecstatic when we gave him the watch. He opened the box, carefully inspected the watch from all sides, got it up and running and synced within moments. He started to explore the gadget with great interest and was surprised by the number of tasks it could perform.

Our long-time supporter Firstmed-FMC Kft. was able to bring happiness to yet another child. We thank them for their help!

PÉTER SZABOLCS (9, BALATONEDERICS)


This year wishes of 3 kids were fulfilled at the same time, as all of them wanted to visit Disneyland Paris. It was the first time that Bianka, Emma and Peter had travelled by plane, so they were quite excited when we met at the airport.

We arrived to the hotel around 3 o’clock in the afternoon and we thought we had entered a Disney story book. After occupying the rooms, we went to the park, where we all were impressed and this memorable feeling lasted for days! We met Mary Poppins, Minnie and Mickey Mouse, and Donald Duck right in the first 30 minutes.
The following two days passed with the same intensity, we were in a Star Wars simulator, we rode the roller coaster, watched Pinocchio and Snow White, and we also visited the Ghost’s Castle… it’s a never-ending list. The kids were doing well. It was good to see how their individuality appeared by the end of the third day.

Peter is a very reserved boy. But the more time we spent together, the more we saw that he was a real man, who became totally excited by the rollercoaster and by other "madnesses" he found at the parc.

Emma is a real “little lady”. According to her mother, she was always a sober-minded girl, but she "grew up" suddenly because of her illness. Emma has a wonderful smile and good sense of humor. Our adventures transformed her soon into a joyful little girl who really enjoyed every moment of the journey.

This year wishes of 3 kids were fulfilled at the same time, as all of them wanted to visit Disneyland Paris. It was the first time that Bianka, Emma and Peter had travelled by plane, so they were quite excited when we met at the airport.

We arrived to the hotel around 3 o’clock in the afternoon and we thought we had entered a live "Disney story book". After occupying the rooms, we went to the park, where we all were impressed and this memorable feeling lasted for days!

We met Mary Poppins, Minnie and Mickey Mouse, and Donald Duck right in the first 30 minutes.
The following two days passed with the same intensity, we used the Star Wars simulator, we rode the roller coaster, watched Pinocchio and Snow White, and we also visited the Ghost’s Castle… it’s a never-ending list. The kids were doing well. It was good to see how their individuality appeared by the end of the third day.


Just one year ago Bianka was still in a wheelchair, but now she has been walking through Disneyland for 3 days, as if she would have never been sick. Bianka has a very strong personality and her sense of humor is excellent. We were laughing a lot. And she is a real Marvel fan...
