Our Campaign Storyends 15 Jul 2022, 11:59 PM
With the Covid-19 Pandemic, many have lost their sources of income, or even loved ones. Although we might be feeling weary, there are people out there who are fighting to get by. Other than direct financial aid and donations, we can help by lending a listening ear. Samaritans of Singapore is a non-profit group that provides 24-hour suicide prevention services to over 100 individuals daily. As we get on with our day to day lives, a little funding can help SOS to train more volunteers and reach out to those who need our help.
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.
