Dr Edward Koch Foundation

Suicide Prevention is Everyone's Business Appeal

There is a great need in the Cairns and Hinterland region to become aware of and involved in reducing the increasing rates of suicide; in 2017, our region experienced a threefold increase in the suicide rate from the previous year. These figures remind us that there is much more that needs to be done to address the issues surrounding suicide. The Dr Edward Koch Foundation is working towards reducing the incidence of suicide and self-harm through various projects. 

Support from the community is fundamental to the Foundation's future, as it is in constant need of funds to support its ongoing activities. It is often left to the private sector to underpin the work of charitable organisations, and indeed without this help most organisations would not be able to function. The Foundation is no exception and relies strongly on the generosity of corporations, service clubs and individual donors.

Your donation will aid these projects and assist with our suicide prevention workshops and is very much appreciated.
