Nectar Care Service Courses

NCS offers training courses that integrate Buddhist teachings and palliative care practices. Through these courses, NCS strives to produce spiritual counsellors and volunteers to help terminally ill patients develop the internal strength to overcome obstacles. NCS seeks a group of committed volunteers, who have strong faith in the Buddha’s teachings, to attend the courses and join our team of volunteers to provide spiritual palliative care to the terminally ill.

  • Activities

    NCS organises activities such as introductory talks to end-of-life care, book clubs, workshops, talks, retreats, sharing through movies and case studies, and spiritual purification. The purpose of these activities is to promote awareness on education surrounding life and death

  • SPONSORSHIP

    We welcome like-minded individuals and organisations to our sponsorship program. NCS can be seen as a vehicle through which the broader Buddhist community could come together and act to provide a specialized, critical service for the benefit of all.

  • Services and Spiritual Care

    NCS has produced a specialised group of volunteers who serves to provide relief and comfort to cancer patients. The area of care includes keeping company, active listening, empathy and emotional support for patients and their families. Additionally, patients are guided to adopt a positive spiritual outlook in order to eliminate all fears, relinquish all attachments and have a sustained will to live out the rest of their lives in a peaceful and dignified manner.

    甘露关怀协会微电影及追思会现场直播预告

    慈生于博爱真诚,善生于感恩包容,同愿同行成就了今日的善行。

    为推广安宁(临终)关怀的理念,本协会摄制了华语版安宁关怀微电影(钟),即将于5月20日(星期六)下午三点至四点在甘露关怀协会进行首播。当日特邀媒体朋友、赞助者亲友、讲师及有关志工们出席观赏;同时获得督导“冯以量”先生亲临主持活动。此外,现场将赠送限量版光碟,作为推广安宁关怀的认识与关注。

    即日,协会也以追思会的形式来悼念和感谢赞助人冯彩莲女士的遗爱精神。微电影首播及追思会当日通过脸书现场直播(Facebook Live),请关心此项活动的志工与朋友们留意播发时间。

    冯女士原想来上课学习当关怀志工,不幸自己却身患癌症。经历了无数的病苦折疼与无助的心境,她深深感受到心力支持的重要,于是面对现实,敞开胸怀地接纳志工的关怀与陪伴 ,希望自己更有力量积极地面对生命的余晖。

    在医疗无效生命极限时,她理智为自己作善终规划,慷概地捐出部分公积金,作为支持甘露协会,积极培训具有安宁陪伴专业精神的志工和推广安宁关怀服务的理念。

    关爱要及时,希望这部微电影能让更多社会人士关注安宁关怀的课题,也了解病患者需要关爱才能找到生命的出口及安顿,家属也能得到调适和缓解。

    让我们一起来学习把善念、信守、感恩付诸于行动,让生命的泉源如甘露滋润大地,成长自己。

    希望大家辗转相告,我们5月20日(星期六)下午3点脸书FB见
