Calling for Students’ participation in Camp Reconnection

Posted by VolunteerSG Admin | Posted in Events | Posted on 12-11-2014

Camp Reconnection is a project initiative by Ren Ci Hospital, targeted at pre-university students.  NUS USP [National University of Singapore (University Scholars Programme)] is enlisted by Ren Ci Hospital to organise a 4-day camp with the objective of reconnecting the elderly and youths of today.  

 

Aimed at youth participants between 16 and 18 years old, we hope to raise awareness of the problems that beleaguer the elderly sector of Singapore, particularly on the elderly who require long-term care. The 4-day camp shall comprise a combination of theoretical and practical activities, culminating in an outdoor field activity with the elderly. Through exposing the youths to the difficulties faced by the elderly in their daily lives, we hope to stimulate their thought and compassion, helping them to better empathise with the older generation. Participants can look forward to an enriching line-up of programmes, including dialect lessons, sharing sessions, amazing race, obstacle courses as well as an attachment at Ren Ci Nursing Home for participants to have a first-hand experience in interacting with the elderly residents.

NUS U@live

U@live (pronounced “U-alive”) is a special monthly forum that will showcase the many outstanding members of the NUS community – students, faculty and alumni – who have been indefatigable in championing causes that’ll make this a better world.

Our invited speaker for the month of April is Dr. Tan Lai Yong. In 1996, Dr. Tan and his family left for the remote village of Xishuangbanna in Yunnan, China as a medical relief doctor. While there, he was a part of the ‘village doctor training program’ that trained villagers to become doctors and help treat their own communities. He is also a passionate environmentalist having planted approximately 20,000 – 30,000 trees with his family during his stay in China. He recently returned to Singapore and volunteers in a clinic for migrant workers.

A unique feature of the U@live event is that it will not only be viewed by a live audience. The event will be streamed live through a dedicated website (www.nus.edu.sg/ualive) and will also incorporate an interactive forum that allows users to post real time comments and questions to the speakers via popular social media platforms such as Facebook or Twitter.

The event will consist of a 10 minute talk by Dr. Tan followed by a 10 minute interview conducted by Mr. Viswa Sadasivan and a 40 minute Q&A session open to the live and online audience.
Details of the event are as follows:
Date: 27th April 2011
Time: 7:30 pm – 8:30 pm (Registration at 6:45pm, Seated at 7:15pm. There will be a cocktail reception after the event)
Location: Auditorium (2nd Storey), Shaw Foundation Alumni House, 11 Kent Ridge Drive, Singapore 119244
Speaker: Dr. Tan Lai Yong
