Our Campaign Storyends 31 Oct 2021, 11:59 PM
Back again for the 3rd year, October 2021 will host another of my birthday fundraiser! A simple donation will earn you a lifelong appreciation from me. Please don't be anonymous so I can thank you with all my heart. Any amount will be greatly appreciated!
It has been over 1.5yrs since we began our journey of covid restrictions and many of us have been / still going through the rollercoaster of emotions. While I enjoy real physical rollercoasters, the emotional one has not been pleasant, more so for many in our midst. It has been a struggle for our mental health, with us continually juggling with our daily stressors.
It's times like these where efforts from the sector truly shine. SOS, along with many other agencies, has stepped up and powered through the tough times, implementing various initiatives to provide support to those who need it. Hence, this fundraiser is to thank and support the good work that they do and is also my effort to #StopTheStigma on mental health issues.
About The Charity
On average in Singapore, more than 408 lives were lost to suicide annually from 2015 to 2020: that's about 1-2 suicides every day.
According to the WHO, for every suicide death, more than 20 others would have attempted it.
Samaritans of Singapore (SOS) is the only suicide prevention centre in Singapore. We are a secular non-profit organisation which provides 24-hour confidential emotional support to people thinking about suicide, affected by suicide, or who have difficulty coping during a crisis. We take a holistic approach to suicide work with an emphasis on suicide prevention, intervention and postvention.
