The Wishing Tree

The Wishing Tree is an annual CSR initiative aimed at fulfilling the wishes of children receiving medical attention in the Paediatric Ward of Hospital Kuala Lumpur (Kuala Lumpur General Hospital)

A partnership with Hospital Kuala Lumpur since the start of the initiative in 2011, the Wishing Tree has since put a smile on hundreds of children by fulfilling their wishes each year. 

Its unique name came about through the idea of setting up a physical tree in the BP office premises, where the wishes of children seeking treatment in Hospital Kuala Lumpur would be collected and tagged to the branches of the “tree”. Employees could then pick a wish to fulfil, and purchase the desired gift of a child. 

The initiative culminates in a grand gift presentation at Hospital Kuala Lumpur, where the children are given an entertainment treat of magic shows and clowns, sweetened by a sumptuous meal before being presented with their presents.
