Just days before Chrismas, Helen's husband left her and her children. She was struggling to cope and started to feel suicidal. Helen called Samaritans for support:
“As soon as I called, I felt such a surge of relief. The calm, kind voice at the end of the phone just listened. For the first time, I felt I could say what was going on in my head, out loud, without fear of being judged. I know that the Samaritan who listened to me that Christmas night saved my life.”
1 in 3 calls to Samaritans on Christmas Day are from people like Helen, who feel lonely and isolated. Save the life of someone like Helen this Christmas, by giving the gift of listening by donating today.
It could be the most important gift you give this year.
