I just had the pleasure of sending out the following email:
Hello all, please spread the message below to let everyone know that Kaan Pete Roi is now open 5 days a week, including late at night on Thursdays. Thanks for your help!
Kaan Pete Roi is an emotional support helpline, staffed by trained volunteers, which people can call to receive immediate support. The mission of the helpline is to alleviate feelings of despair, isolation, distress, and suicidal intent among members of our community. Kaan Pete Roi accomplishes this through confidential, compassionate, and open-minded listening. Such helplines exist in over 40 nations in the world and play an important role in suicide prevention and the promotion of mental health. Kaan Pete Roi is the first of its kind in Bangladesh.
