At Saramitans, someone is there 24/7 – twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, since 1953 – to help anyone who needs emotional support. So it’s fitting that they should choose today, the twenty-fourth of July, as their fundraising and awareness day (hat tip: RTÉ news; see also their press release).
Samaritans provides confidential non-judgmental support, 24 hours a day for people experiencing feelings of distress or despair, including those which could lead to suicide.
The Dublin branch, founded in 1970 and now at 112 Marlborough Street, Dublin 1, are hoping that residents of Dublin and the greater Dublin area will lend a hand in 24/7 promotion and fundraising.
