InterContinental Jakarta MidPlaza has joined forces withYKAKI (Yayasan Kasih Anak Kanker Indonesia) to create an inspiring new CSR program that brings joy to children who are suffering from cancer. This heartfelt initiative involves hosting a monthly birthday party to help young cancer sufferers temporarily forget about all the problems associated with this life-threatening illness. YKAKI was founded in 2006 as a recognized body to represent the families of children with this devastating disease. YKAKI’s mission is to provide support as well as share information to improve access to the best possible medical treatment and care for children with cancer in Indonesia. A fun birthday party with all the trimmings gives these children hope and a sense of normality as they battle against cancer. Every party is a carefree celebration complete with a cake, gifts, photos, games and prizes. InterContinental Jakarta MidPlaza has named this event Candle Wishes – Light a Candle for Your Wishes, whose aim is to bring happiness and laughter to children in need.
