The article, “Adding Life to the Days of Terminally Ill Children in India”, by Hila Mehr states
“The care is delivered to the patient and their family or support system, usually by a team of experts that include physicians, nurses, social workers, health aides, chaplains as well as support personnel.
This sad article looks at the reality of terminally ill children in India who cannot afford proper care. Pastoral care givers hope to give some quality of life to these suffering children.
This is the primary purpose of any Pastoral Thanatology–to care for the dying, of any age. It is even more painful when one sees death coming so early to these young faces. The study of Pastoral Thanatology hopes to teach care givers the skills to help alleviate the suffering of the dying and guide them.
