Who is your idea designed for and how does it reimagine the end-of-life experience?

By creating a platform where people can offer their resources, skills and energy in ensuring a safer, just and equal society through volunteering to help the sick and elderly especially in terminal diseases. The sick and weary can be empowered in prayer sessions, music lessons, praise and worship services, bible study and simple games where they can learn new things and the love of God through the volunteers. Also story telling sessions and teaching on bible stories can motivate them to healing

Prayer has brought multiple healing in history and also in the Holy King James Bible which is the word of God. Multiple videos have surfaced on the internet showing people getting healed through prayers and their faith. Most terminally ill people who survive diseases like cancer do so due to the use of alternative methods of healing. One of the common tactic is the use of alternative medicine and natural foods. Another method has been through faith and prayers.

The use of therapy sessions like reading the bible and listening to soothing music can also work miracles in giving patients a peace of mind and healing. Also, by providing volunteer company and easy peer to peer games, sick people are able to find relief from pain temporarily and sometimes permanently.

Use of jokes and comic relief can help to relax terminally ill patients. Materials in form of videos and podcasts can be helpful in creating a more relaxing environment for patients to relax and heal faster.

What early, lightweight experiment might you try out in your own community to find out if the idea will meet your expectations?

I will start music therapy sessions and faith lessons for the terminally ill to encourage them that healing starts from the inside after which it happens in the outside. I will do these sessions for the very sick and them that have lost hope in medicine and doctors to know there is a healer in Jesus Christ if they just believe and let God work miracles in their lives. I will also create comic relief materials for terminally ill patients to enjoy even in their pain.

What skills, input or guidance from the OpenIDEO community would be most helpful in building out or refining your idea?

The develop materials especially on animations and messaging for sick people. Also I hope that the OPENIDEO community can help me to form the scrum teams with diverse skills to brainstorm on the various use cases and there overall effects.
