Together with our sister company Issta Sport & Music, Kenes Tours is proud of our ongoing commitment to Make-A-Wish Israel. We are honored to support them in their mission of granting magical wishes to enrich the lives of children fighting life-threatening medical conditions with hope, strength and joy.
‘Make-A-Wish was established in 1980 in Phoenix, Arizona, when Linda, the mother of seven-year-old Chris, suffering from cancer, granted him, together with the Phoenix Police Department, his wish to become a Police Officer for a day.
Since then, more than 415,000 wishes have been granted worldwide, in 50 countries, in addition to 60 chapters in the United States.
Make-A-Wish Israel is the Israeli affiliate of Make-A-Wish International, and was founded in 1996 by Denise and Avi Bar-Aharon. Since its inception, it has granted over 3,000 magical wishes.
Denise Bar-Aharon, Co-Founder and CEO, Make-A-Wish Israel:
“We believe that every child has one true wish and it is our privilege to be able to turn their dreams into reality. By doing so, we feel that it gives them the strength needed to keep fighting their illness.
Make-A-Wish Israel is so excited and thankful to have friends like Kenes Tours that help us grant wishes to children facing life threatening conditions.”
