About Campaignends 31 Dec 2018, 11:59 PM
Established in 1969, the Samaritans of Singapore (SOS) is a charity with IPC status dedicated to providing emotional support to individuals facing a crisis & thinking about suicide, as well as helping those affected by suicide. Our work focuses on crisis intervention and suicide prevention.
To meet the evolving needs of the community & the increasing demand for our services, we need to embark on capacity building to broaden our range of services, uplift our service quality & enhance the physical space, so as to better serve the community.
We are organizing a Flag Day on 3 November 2018, hoping to raise $200,000 for our service enhancement project. This is the first time we are organizing a Flag Day, and it has not been easy to garner support. We would like to appeal for your kindness to support us with a cash donation, to help make our Flag Day a success.
We thank you for your generous support, which will enable us to continue providing relevant services to more vulnerable individuals in Singapore who are facing a crisis.
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.
