Kirtimayi Mishra is the current Head of Office at Catholic Relief Services (CRS) India. As a long standing humanitarian, she has seen her community and country become transformed through the work of Catholic Relief Services. As her role as Head of Office, Kirtimayi oversees programs that build community resilience, reducing the impact of floods on the livelihoods of vulnerable communities in the most disaster stricken and food insecure states of India.
We invite you to a conversation with Kirtimayi Mishra. Come and listen how she is building resilient communities in the midst of natural disaster. Kirtimayi expressed that resilient communities can fish. “[If you] give a person a fish, you feed him for a day; [if you] teach a person to fish and you feed people for a lifetime. While it is important to have humanitarian response in the aftermath of disaster, it is worth investing in community preparedness and building resilience so that communities are not dependent on external assistance or relief. This is what CRS is doing in India and countries around the world. Come and listen her story and her lifesaving work.
Our national history is an immigrant story, yet we have many diverse opinions on what it means to welcome the stranger. Using Augusto Boals’ forum theater approach, we will engage in a transformative safe conversation where all have an opportunity to share perspectives on this issue in a trusting environment. Join using this approach to social justice conversations.
The provision of spiritual and/or religious care in healthcare has received prominence in national reports, guidelines and standards since the start of the millennium. According to these national recommendations spiritual care is to be provided by healthcare providers (within their scope of practice) when the patient/pt. advocate requests spiritual care; when there is evidence of spiritual/religious distress; or requests for spiritual/religious resources.
The purpose of the presentation is to provide health care providers knowledge about spirituality in patient health care; to develop professional skills in spiritual care in healthcare; and to enhance one’s role and responsibility on the interdisciplinary team in practicing spiritual care in holistic healthcare.
