Dóra (16 years old, Mesztenyő)
Dóri has been treated at PTE KK Children’s Hospital for a long time. When I told her about the Csodalámpa Foundation, I could see that at first she didn’t dare to ask for anything. Later however, when she saw that wishes were being fulfilled all around her, she also suggested that she would like a white laptop. Then she waited patiently.
The wish had been fulfilled at the best possible time. She was going through a particularly gloomy and unpleasant period of her treatment which we managed to cheer up with this present.
When she saw the box in my hands at first she didn’t think it was her present. And then it registered …
It felt great to participate in Dóri’s heartfelt joy.
Tünde (13 years old, Hajdúböszörmény)
Tündike is 14 years old and she’s been battling with her illness for a very long time. She’s been treated at Miskolc Children’s Hospital for many months now. When we talked about what she would like to ask from Csodalámpa, she considered for a while, and then asked for an LCD TV.
I entered her room just before she was about to start her next round of treatments, carrying with me a huge box containing an enormous LG LCD TV. The nurses were right behind me wanting to see her reaction.
Dear Tündike! The entire Csodalámpa team wishes lots of joy with your present and a swift recovery.
Milán (4 years old, Vadna)
Have you ever seen children’s eyes sparkling with joy, haven’t you? Milan’s eyes surely were bright when he saw his present. Even his jaws dropped. He saw such a machine in the hospital it was one of his roommates’, and they played with it together. The game made him forget that he is in the hospital, and being treated. On the way home, he asked his Mother to buy one machine, because it’s good to play with. Isn’t this the situation where Csodalampa used to help?
Magic and helpful intentions fulfilled Milan’s wish...
Happy Children’s Day to you Milan!
Lilla (11 years old, Miskolc)
Lilla’s wish was to visit the PortAventura amusement park near Barcelona and to swim in the see. The wish was granted thanks to the generousity and cooperation of our benefactors.
The journey was a great adventure for the little girl from the first moment to the last. Lilla was very good at finding her way around the amusement park with the map, and planned her time very wisely so she could try everything she wanted to. After a busy day at PortAventura we spent the evening sightseeing in Barcelona. The next day we dived into the waves of the Mediterranean See.

Kevin (10 years old, Bag)
Kevin is in the 4th grade and he lives in a small village close to Budapest. He was thinking a lot about what he should ask from Csodalampa that can be really helpful for him. Finally, he decided to ask for a laptop as it is something his parents can’t afford to buy and it will be very helpful in his studies and to catch-up on classes he missed due to his illness.
As you can see on the photos, he was very happy that his wish came true. He promised he would use the laptop more for studying than playing.
Eszter Kitti (11 years old, Szinpetri)
Eszter is a very determined 12 years old girl whose whish was a colorful laptop.
On her 12th birthday, we brought the awaited machine to her home.
Her parents tried to keep their feelings secret. After we arrived, Judit came in with Eszter’s favorite chocolate cake. At first, Eszter didn’t think that Csodalampa would fulfill her wish.
When she saw us, she exclaimed: purple laptop!
She began to set up the machine very skillfully. Meanwhile, she explained that it will be used for learning and playing in the hospital, where she spent a lot of time recently. So later on this will help to keep in touch with her family and friends.
Eszter (17 years old, Budapest)
Eszter’s wish was to see the world famous sights of Barcelona. The wish was granted thanks to the generousity and cooperation of our benefactors. The journey was an experience the girl will remember for the rest of her life.
The athmosphere of Barceloana fits Eszter’s personality perfectly. She is open-hearted, candid and has an increditbly happy soul. She absorbed the positive vibes of the busy and lively streets of Barcelona like a sponge. We visited the Sagrada Familia, the Park Güell, the Aquarium of Barcelona, and the scenes of the 1992 Olympics, to name a few. Here’s Eszter’s way of thanking us the memorable days:

Dániel (9 years old, Vámospércs)
The 10-year-old Dani is treated at GYEK in Miskolc. He spends most of his time in front of his laptop as he loves playing games on the internet. When I asked him what he would wish for from the Genie of Csodalampa he said he would like a laptop with the newest games on it without hesitation. A Gamer laptop was his dream!
Dani and his mother were very surprised when I entered his hospital ward with a box in my hands. Once he realised what’s in the box he immediately forgot how sick he felt just moments earlier. He was joyfully opening the present containing the laptop he dreamt about.
We turned it on immediately and Dani called his family right away to discuss which games to install. It was great to see how happy he was!
Miklós (16 years old, Budapest)
The Italians were really likeable an not just because of their language and their funny gestures but because they are all nice and friendly.
Our accomondation was also very good and what I really liked was the big smorgasbord for breakfast. They served it on the roof of the hotel so we could see the whole city of Rome.
My favourite monument was the St. Peter's Basilica, especially the cupola part where we could go up and could have a look around. It was wonderful.
We really enjoyed the whole trip and it was a fantastic experience for me.

Zita Brigitta (17 years old, Budapest)
My wish was to visit Düsseldorf in Germany and to take part in the Japan Day. There were several reasons why I wished so. I am interested in the Japanese culture and art and I am also attracted by Germany. Thus, two of our dreams came true at the same time.
My adventure was begun with an early morning flight on Friday. After a quick breakfast at the airport, our plane took off. I was on the board with my brother and Ms. Éva Batári from the Magic Lamp Foundation. During the flight I took several photos of the beautiful clouds. In Düsseldorf we were accommodated at the Hilton Dusseldorf. The hotel was very nice and the room was really convenient. First we had a sightseeing tour. We had a delicious lunch in the Japanese quarter, then we went to a Japanese department store to buy some snacks, mostly candy, of course. The „Japan Day” was held next day. Lots of people attended, and many of them wore Japanese cartoon character’s cosplays. I also had a cosplay, I was an earl. But before I became an earl, we visited a car exhibition nearby. I really enjoyed walking in the town in cosplay. The atmosphere was very cozy and I also met celebrities which was an unexpected surprise. Fantastic fireworks were the perfect way to end the magical day.
Last day we visited the Benrath Castle where we took part in a tour called "Secret Routes". It was worth seeing! I had never seen a castle, with so many hidden paths and rooms. Interior and the furniture were wonderful. I am afraid this would be my favourite castle.
Thank you very much for this fantastic opportunity and experience.”

Márk (14 years old, Rudolftelep)
It is hard to summarize our weekend because so much things happened to us. Márk travelled from Rudolftelep to Madrid and he got richer with a lot of experiences. Shortly after the initial awe Márk got more and more excited and even the airplane and the hotel in Madrid gave him and his mother many novelty. They both flew for the first time, and they have never been abroad before.
The sightseeing, the stadium visiting and of course the Real Madrid-Valencia match itself enhanced the mood.
We were really looking forward to the Sunday’s match. We enjoyed as the Bernabeu stadium filled with people and then that the match finally started. We had a lot of exciting moments and in the end our team, the Real won by 3:2.
The chilly and rainy weather could not ruin our great time and although we arrived to Budapest wearily, I think these days were unforgettable for all of us.
