Omniaty, which means 'my wish' in Arabic, commits to create an organization to grant wishes to children, give it a legal format, identify possible supporters, commit financial resources, and coordinate activities between Omniaty and the various hospitals and charitable organizations that are willing to work together to make the wishes of the children come true.
In Kuwait, terminally ill children use specific hospitals assigned for such cases. As such, Omniaty will be able to receive frequent updates on all the cases. Additionally, a Kuwaiti organization, KAACH, already has a database of such cases, so the organization will assist in contacting children via the database. At the same time, Omniaty will also allow people to submit their applications.
Omniaty will grant 100 wishes every year.
Omniaty has already created a legal entity to highlight their work and has coordinated with KAACH and other Kuwait hospitals to build a database of children in need.
Furthermore, Omniaty has secured supporters and funding for the next four years and is in the process of creating a website to enable others see the work being accomplished.
In the first year of operation, Omniaty will start fulfilling wishes in October 2012 and will grant 100 wishes over the course of the following twelve months.
Omniaty is a national, nonprofit organization whose aim is to grant wishes to less fortunate children with terminal and deteriorating illnesses. Kuwait has witnessed an increase in certain types of terminal illness and, as a result, there is increasing need to support children who are living with potentially deadly diseases. Working in collaboration with Bait Abdulla and children's hospitals in Kuwait, Omniaty identifies children in need and fulfills their wishes. Omniaty's goal is to help children in need regardless of gender, race or financial status. Omniaty grants wishes to Kuwaiti children between the ages of 3 - 18 who have been diagnosed with a deteriorating or terminal disease.
