How Your Donation Makes a Difference
Your donations help us spread the word and reach out to those experiencing a crisis, thinking of suicide, or affected by suicide.
Expectations and pressure at school is a source of distress for teenagers, leading them to contemplate suicide even. $50 will help us reach out to the equivalent of a classroom full of students.
Thank you for donating - your help ensures that we continue helping others in need!
Thank you for donating - at SOS, we believe suicide prevention is everybody's business!
About Campaignends 10 Sep 2017, 11:59 PM
For World Suicide Prevention Day 2016, SOS put in motion a movement to get more people talking about the issue, and asking for the help they need. Unique SOS-designed plasters with the words #howru printed on it were created and distributed online and on the ground. Members of public were encouraged to play their part towards suicide prevention by acquiring a plaster and pledging their support.
If you have heard about or seen the campaign, that's awesome!
If you supported the cause in any way, thank you for the love!
If you didn't manage to do either, here's another chance for you to play your part in suicide prevention.
Donate and your contributions will go towards World Suicide Prevention Day 2017.
Elevators, trains, offices, schools; we want #howru to reach as many people as possible because we believe suicide prevention is everybody's business.
About the Charity
On average in Singapore, more than 400 lives were lost to suicide annually from 2014 to 2018: 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. We set out to be an Available Lifeline to Anyone in Crisis as we aim to be the Premiere Organisation in Suicide Prevention in Singapore. To find out more, visit www.sos.org.sg.
