THIS August, exciting Saturday afternoons await viewers as “Wish Ko Lang”—hosted by GMA News and Public Affairs pillar Vicky Morales—celebrates 20 years of granting wishes with the most cinematic anniversary episodes and biggest presents to date.

For two colorful decades, the award-winning GMA Public Affairs program has made life-changing memories for Filipinos here and abroad. With stories that spark hope and inspiration, “Wish Ko Lang” continues to touch viewers’ lives by granting their wishes every week. And from fulfilling wishes via mailed letters, “Wish Ko Lang” is now able to reach more people across the globe via social media.

“For anyone, 20 years—in a relationship or in business—is such a big milestone,” shared Vicky. “I feel very grateful that we have reached two decades. We’ve been through a lot in the past 20 years. Of course there were challenges along the way. Our programming temporarily hit a roadblock but we resumed in the middle of the pandemic. It’s just like we somewhat mirrored what happens in real life between couples or friends. This helps us to treasure every episode even more.”

As the show embarks on a new chapter, “Wish Ko Lang” is set to make more people smile, laugh, and believe that nothing is impossible to those who fervently hope and work hard for their dreams.

This August, Vicky will give the show’s biggest gifts to deserving Filipinos, including a Wish Ko Lang financial assistance amounting to P100,000.

The program is also giving away “Instant Wish” packages through its official Facebook page, where the most deserving individuals will have the chance to bring home business packages, gadgets, and cash assistance, among others.

Shot with high-end C700 cameras, the month-long special features some of the country’s highly-acclaimed actors led by Sid Lucero, Bianca Umali, Tessie Tomas and Claudine Barretto.

In the “Sugal” episode airing on Aug. 6, Bianca takes on the story of Marife–a strong-willed and brave bus conductor. Joining Bianca are Andrea del Rosario, Ian de Leon, Prince Clemente, Dentrix Ponce and Bryce Eusebio.

The episode is directed by Rommel Penesa and penned by head writer Erwin Caezar Bravo and writer Adam Cornelius Asin.

Don’t miss the upcoming episodes headlined by Barretto (Aug. 13: “Bisita”), Tomas (Aug. 20: “Bintang”) and Lucero (Aug. 27: “Selos”).

The “Wish Ko Lang” 20th anniversary episodes are made extra special with the release of the program’s original soundtrack (OST) to be recorded by Hannah Precillas, Anthony Rosaldo, Jessica Villarubin and Ysabel Ortega.

Catch the anniversary episodes beginning Aug. 6, 4 p.m. on GMA Network with livestreaming on GMA Public Affairs social media accounts.
