PRIME: A Discussion on Chronic Illnesses, Hospital Volunteerism, and Child Advocacy

There is perhaps nothing more fulfilling than making someone smile, especially knowing that you might have just made their day a little better. This goes to hospital volunteerism – helping children with chronic illnesses live a more colorful and joyful life. Conversely, hospital volunteers would say that their day has also become brighter after spending just a few hours with children with chronic illnesses through hospital visits and other events and activities.

This is a day in the life of a UP Flyer, one who aims to demonstrate compassion for others and maintain a passion for service—service that is particularly directed towards children with chronic illnesses and their family members.

UP Flyers, a university-wide student organization in the University of the Philippines Diliman, is but one of the many organizations that seek to uphold an advocacy of care and service towards children with chronic illnesses, which involves finding ways through which could help ease their conditions, wherever and whenever possible. Through events and activities, advocacy and awareness talks, participating in day fairs, and mainly, hospital visits, UP Flyers could forward its cause little by little to ensure a happier and friendlier world for the children.

It is, then, one of the objectives of UP Flyers to not be merely aware of chronic illnesses and the stories of the children who experience them, but also to become initiators in spreading said awareness to the rest of the university community. To fulfill this, UP Flyers will be conducting its first-ever Alternative Classroom Learning Experience (ACLE) entitled PRIME: A Discussion on Chronic Illnesses, Hospital Volunteerism, and Child Advocacy.

We happily invite you to join UP Flyers in this event on October 12, 2017 (Thursday), 1PM-5PM, at the UPSEAA room, School of Economics, University of the Philippines Diliman. See you all there!
