I met Csenge at the hospital and she had no idea that her wish will come true today as her parents only told her that they have to pop in to the clinic for a quick check.

Our supporter, BlackRock was represented by Agota Kovacs who remembers the day with the following words:
"Csenge was adorable, it gave her a massive surprise when I explained why I was there. When she opened the laptop her first reaction was that she will show her beautiful white laptop to her friends.

I helped her to switch it on and we did the main settings. Her happiness could not have been more obvious as we 'tried' the laptop a few times while I was with her.

Looking at Csenge's and her parents' joy I am confident, that the laptop is in the best hands."

We would like to thank in the name of Csenge the support given by BlackRock Budapest office!

Zsolt (10, Szeged)

Standing there with the remote controlled train in our hands, we knew instantly that the smile spreading across Zsolti’s face was a smile we would never forget.

The LEGO set itself was so large that it took us an incredible amount of time just to understand all of its characters and background story. In fact, the attention to detail was so remarkable that if we removed the roof of the hot dog store and peeked inside, there was an entire complex of customers drinking coffee and going about their lives. Of course Zsolti knew all of this already; he had watched it with great excitement in a video prior to our arrival. Yet when receiving the gift, genuine excitement and gratitude radiated off of him, warming all of our hearts.

After realizing that we forgot to get the batteries for the remote, one of us ran down to the store to buy some while the others helped unpack the contents of the box onto Zsolti’s hospital bed. Observing the LEGO set we were thinking to ourselves how many hundreds of pieces it may have consisted of, puzzled at its size. Zsolti himself was quite impressed too, remarking that the remote controller for the train was the newest and most impressive model. And to our greatest joy, his responses led us to believe that we really did bring him a cool gift!

Zsolti, we hope our gift will bring you lots of joy in times to come and thank you for having us!!

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

Kitti’s wish was to spend a couple days in Hajdúszoboszló on vacation with her mother and siblings. And since they were relaxing near to my home I was able to meet up with Kitti and her family. I took them out for lunch in order for us to be able to get to know each other a bit. This restaurant was modelled after a ship both on the interior and exterior.

Kitti loved it, and all of her tension seemed to disperse very quickly! She talked about her current treatment and what has been happening to her recently. Evidently, like all the other kids Csodalampa works with, she is quite the fighter herself.

Seeing that we were getting along very well we were able to spend several hours together! I found that she has an caring family, who protect her and love her dearly.

Kitti also talked about her experience in Hajdúszoboszló and revealed that she had a great time there! I was very happy to be able to meet Kitti and I hope that we will have yet another chance to meet again.

We would like to thank in the name of Kitti too the support given by the Hungarian National Bank, the guests and management of the Corinthia Hotel Budapest and our private donors, that made it possible to realise Kitti's dream.

Dear Csodalámpa!

I would like to thank you for granting my long standing wish to visit Hajdúszoboszló. After all the problems caused by my illness it was a real enlightment to have holiday with my mum and brother..

It was real fun, the hotel was beautiful, all the staff really kind to me. The spa was excellent, with lots of pools, slides - I tried almost all of them.
I also learned new things like playing mini golf, and I rolled on an electric scooter too...

We even went to Debrecen for a day to visit the Zoo and also the fun park. I could play with animals, and I triwed lots of attractions too.

I've got a lot of beautiful experiences. Thank you very much for the opportunity!

Csilla is quite an artist, drawing is her biggest hobby.

The young teenage girl’s dream was to own tablet which could allow her to draw and unveil her creativity. Such a tablet could allow her creativity to soar and express herself in her way.

Her dream was became a reality when Csilla was undergoing a lengthy set of treatments at the hospital. It was to her greatest surprise when Judit Drakopoulos, on behalf of Corinthia Hotel Budapest, presented her with her gift, the Tablet. This tablet was followed by other useful and valuable gifts, emerging one by one from Judit’s bag.

Csilla got so excited that she initially was even scared to hold the tablet, for fear of that she might break it. Yet eventually, after a bit of encouragement, she meticulously unboxed the tablet and squeezed it against herself. Her gaze gave away that her thoughts were already elsewhere, contemplating the future use of this new companion and the expressive pieces of art that she was sure to create with it.

Seeing the young artist’s excitement we felt it was time to slowly leave her. We, of course, did not want impede on the young creator’s first big opportunity to truly express herself and her artistic fantasies.

On behalf of both the teams of Corinthia Hotel Budapest and the Csodalámpa team we wish her a swift recovery and hope she remains persistent in the pursuit of her dreams!

We would like to thank Mrs. Judit Pécsi Drakopoulos , the hotel’s marketing and communication manager for personally attending the granting of Csilla’s wish.

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

Patrícia Liliom (6, Kolontár)

Patrícia, as most of her age-group, really likes cartoons.

The hours spent on watching cartoons make her days in the hospital more bearable; therefore, she wished from the Magic Lamp Wish Granting Foundation nothing else than a tablet, capable of watching cartoons.

The delivery of the gift was a little bit delayed, but we hope that this device brought even more joy to Patrícia.

We wish her a lot of joyful moments granted by these cartoons, so she can forget the everyday struggles.

Thank you to UNHCR Global Service Centre for their help.
