Youth Champs for Mental Health today received assistance from Group 93, an international group of volunteers that have worked under the Peace Corp for two years in Fiji.
The group travelled from across the USA and are made up of young volunteers that have worked with different NGOs and Ministries.
They donated close to $2000 and the money will be used for daily expensed by the members of the NGO.
Senior Volunteer, Regina Rakacikaci says the collaboration with the group has been wonderful and the aid will benefit suicide survivors.
“There’s an upcoming campaign that is the Silencing stigma campaign, so it’s not only going to be used in the Central division, because we and two other divisions which is the North and the one in the west. So we’re going to use it as an awareness, the silencing stigma campaign which is on the 10th of next month.”
The Group says they will continue to support Youth Champs 4 Mental Health in their campaign to prevent suicide.
