Before I got on to this charity I didn't know the enormity of the problem but since I started working with CCC I realised that SL has the highest teen suicide rate in the world!.
When I dug deeper I also realised that these kids don't have anyone to speak to or reach out to, as most of the time the perpetrators are their immediate family. Hence this charity will go a long way in providing them a telephone line and 2 x counsellors to talk to, just like lifeline in OZ.
I am now spending a lot of time with this charity to make a difference. We have also done a Half way house (Ronald McDonald concept) in SL where families from outstations can come to Colombo and stay with their kids while getting treatment.
On a very personal note, lifeline in OZ helped saved my family and I will do whatever it takes to assist to save someone else's life.
I am passionate about helping this charity make a difference and I am determine to make a change in my own personal way.
