Havenue is a Regular Volunteering Programme that reaches out to patients with life-limiting illnesses under HCA Hospice Care.
WHAT WE DO
Our volunteers visit and befriend our beneficiaries at their homes every Saturday. During these visits, we engage the beneficiaries in various activities such as colouring and handicrafts. We help them with household chores (e.g. cleaning or buying groceries) to keep their living conditions pleasant. We also spend time chit-chatting with them. Through this, we get the opportunity to learn very interesting things from the wealth of experiences that they share.
During festive seasons such as Chinese New Year and Mid-Autumn Festival, we will come together to enjoy fun-filled games, engaging handicraft sessions and many other exciting activities!
Besides our weekly befriending visits, we organise and participate in ad-hoc activities and visits to HCA Day Hospice Centre. We organise three main events at HCA Day Hospice Centre every year such as Valentine’s Day Celebration, Christmas or New Year Celebration as well as Project Nuevo.

HEAR FROM OUR VOLUNTEERS
I really enjoy visiting our beneficiaries as I could interact with them and listen to their personal life stories. I have learnt a lot from them and happy to know that I have brought some positive impact to their lives. Moreover, Havenue has also given me the opportunity to meet new friends from other faculties and with common interests.
By volunteering with Havenue, I am able to take a short break from my busy schedule and have the chance to interact with the beneficiaries and people with common interests. I have benefitted a lot from them and all these volunteering experiences that I have gained are really precious and valuable to me.
I enjoy volunteering with Havenue as it provides me the chance to interact with the beneficiaries and also other volunteers of different age and background. It is really touching and fulfilling to know that the beneficiaries also enjoy and look forward to the weekly visitations held by us. Through these interactions, I have learnt a lot from the beneficiaries’ experiences and hope to forge closer bonds with them in future visits.
Volunteering with Havenue has been very meaningful as we are able to help brighten the lives of the beneficiaries and help them to complete daily tasks such as household chores that they may face some difficulty in. Through Havenue, I can now better empathise with the beneficiary and better understand and relate to their problems. I hope to create a stronger bond with the beneficiary by talking and listening to the beneficiary more during the house visits.
