Here at REBORN we believe that suicide prevention starts with you. We have partnered with both By the Numbers and The Love Foundation Club to raise funds to send 300 children a new school uniform. The funds raised will be sent to a seamstress in Ghana who will be making the uniforms. We also want to supply these children with a new pair of shoes.

We need your help.

According to Wikipedia suicide is the act of intentionally causing one's own death.  Depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, personality disorders, and substance abuse — including alcoholism and the use of benzodiazepines — are risk factors. Some suicides are impulsive acts due to stress such as from financial difficulties, troubles with relationships, or bullying. Children as young as 10 years old are committing suicide and it has become a worldwide epidemic.

Dr. Akwasi Osei, the Chief Executive Officer of the Mental Health Authority in Ghana, states that for every one reported case of suicide throughout the country, there are four unreported cases. This brings the number of unreported suicides in Ghana to a staggering 6,000 people annually.

Unfortunately, studies have shown that suicidal tendencies in Ghana start in adolescent years. Precursors of suicide can be attributed to the Ghanaian micro system, such as family and school life. As with numerous developing countries, many of the children are living without basic necessities, forcing them to walk miles to school with no shoes, and arriving to class with uniforms that are ripped and torn. These circumstances lead to heavy psychological burdens on the children, already lacking a formal education and healthcare system.

This is where you come in. Donate, send shoes, or purchase a T-shirt through By the Numbers. 100% of the sales through By The Numbers will be sent to The Love Foundation Club through Reborn. We need you to tell all of your friends, family, coworkers and even random people in the grocery store. Give Thanks and Give Back to the children of Ghana with Reborn this November. Suicide Prevention starts with you.
