Every year, medical students from NUS partner with local community hospitals and hospices to enhance the wellbeing of palliative care patients, provide a listening ear and spend time accompanying them in the final stretch of their journey.

WHAT VOLUNTEERS SAY

TIMOTHY, VOLUNTEER

Performing for PHA really pushed me out of my comfort zone! I am thankful that even through something small, I was able to put a smile on the face of another, and that in itself is something I'm glad for.

My heart was truly warmed by her smiles which erased all awkwardness I felt singing to a screen. She was truly a beautiful lady with a beautiful heart.

NOVIA, VOLUNTEER + COMM

When asked what she has yet to do or achieve in this lifetime, she told us that she was perfectly content with everything in life. Overall, we are just very inspired to live in the moment and to find joy in the little things in life like she did.
