It is said that a dream is a wish the heart makes. Therefore, for the 9th consecutive year, Ipoh Parade is leading Christmas celebrations with the “Grant A Wish Christmas Campaign” to make the festive season more inclusive and meaningful for marginalised kids at children’s homes in and around Ipoh.
