We, the volunteers of DNipCare, (Delhites National Initiative in Palliative Care)
would like to invite you for the ‘World Hospice & Palliative Care Day Celebration’
at 5.00 PM on Saturday, 8th October 2011 in M.P’s Club, South Avenue, New Delhi.
World Hospice and Palliative Care Day is a unified day of action to celebrate and support hospice and palliative care around the world. The theme for World Day 2011 with Voices for Hospices which will take place on October 8 2011 is "Many diseases, many lives, many voices - palliative care for non-communicable conditions".
This year’s theme will focus on how people living with conditions which are not infectious, can benefit from palliative care.
In addition to volunteers, experts from medical and paramedical fields, eminent people from all walks of life and some of our Palliative patients are also expected to participate in the program.
The program will include three sessions as under:
Palliative Session : 5.00 PM
The Palliative Care especially in the metropolis of Delhi will be discussed
in detail by the experts and policy planners including people from high echelons of
bureaucracy and politics.
Open Forum : 6.00 PM
During this session, the patients and their carers will be provided an opportunity to interact freely
with volunteers, palliative experts and policy planners and air their concerns and issues pertaining to the illness.
Cultural Eve : 7.00 PM
The in-house musical and cultural talents of volunteers, patients and participating well wishers will be showcased in this session to enthrall the audience.
Let us all join hands together and provide little solace to the ailing patients around us.

it is requested that this invitation may please be conveyed to all our other
volunteers & well wishers also)
With warm regards,
