This year marks an important milestone for SOS as we celebrate our service to the community for 50 years. Established in 1969, Samaritans of Singapore (SOS) remains the only dedicated suicide prevention agency providing emotional support to individuals facing a crisis, thinking about or affected by suicide.
More than 1 life is lost to suicide every day. In 2018, 397 ended their own lives and suicide remains the leading cause of death in Singapore for young persons aged 10-29. The impact of suicide is devastating to the lives of loved ones and those in the affected social circle. Today suicide remains a sensitive and taboo topic in Singapore.
To meet the evolving needs of the community and the increase demand for our services, SOS plans to embark on three key strategies in the next 3 years. These strategies are to increase HR capacity and capability, leveraging on technology by deploying enhanced, scalable IT & telephony system and relocate to bigger premises for effective operation.
To mark the special occasion of our 50th anniversary, we will be hosting a charity gala dinner on 6 December to commemorate our golden jubilee. We will like to appeal for the community's support by making an outright donation or reserving a table at the dinner to support our cause. Table donations and outright donations will be entitled to 2.5 times tax exemption.
