Background

When people become seriously ill and a cure is no longer possible, there is still so much that can be done for them. Palliative care encompasses not only medical and nursing care, but also the mental state of a person in their last phase of life. Palliative care creates dignity and comfort by enabling autonomy and self-determination for those affected. In this last stage of life, many affected people still have a place or people they would like to see or visit one last time. This is often not possible in a private setting because the seriously ill are usually very fragile and need permanent medical care. This is where the wish ambulance comes into play: We fulfil these last, previously unfulfilled wishes thanks to our specially equipped ambulance and volunteers with a medical background. In this way, we can give dying people back some of their self-determination.

Idea

The idea of fulfilling last wishes originated in Holland in 2007. Inspired by there, we founded the wish ambulance in Switzerland in 2017. We fulfil last wishes of the heart through donations. These are as diverse as the people themselves. In the past, we were able to make it possible for people to have their wedding, bring fans and music idols together, make it possible for animals and people to see each other again, or accompany well wishers one last time to a place that is very special to them. Since 2017, the wish ambulance has been able to fulfil more than 400 wishes and give patients and their relatives unforgettable moments of happiness.
In the SRF programme Happy Day, Wish Ambulance founder Petar Sabovic presented his project - and was got a new ambulance vehicle, donated by AMAG. Watch the report here: Happy Day-Link
A special campaign is still running on there-for-you.com, which includes the purchase and installation of a new stretcher for the vehicle. You can find the campaign here: tfy.help/wunschambulanztrage

Implementation

The fulfilment of wishes of people in this last phase of life is often very difficult or impossible to realise privately due to the necessary medical care and the lack of appropriate transport options. Experience shows that a wish fulfilment costs between CHF 700 and CHF 1,500. At an average of CHF 1,100, a wish fulfilment is expensive, and the medically necessary and effort should not be underestimated. The wish ambulance takes over the organisation and costs, and the wish fulfilment is free for the ill person and their relatives.
Wish fulfilment means a lot to the dying and their relatives - it is often an important step in saying goodbye to places of longing, loved ones or animals. The volunteers are touched to be able to participate in such a significant moment and to experience the gratitude and satisfaction of the patients and their relatives.
In order to be able to secure the operation in the future, your generosity is needed: The more donations we generate, the more heartfelt wishes we can fulfil!
The wish ambulance project is an ongoing project and continuously uses the funds for the wish fulfillments that come in. Every donation benefits the project.
