Into The Dawn' Annual Walk
September 8, 2019

On the occasion of World Suicide Prevention Day (September 10), Embrace held its annual “Into the Dawn” walk on Sunday September 8th 2019 as a suicide memorial walk. This advocacy initiative is intended to foster an environment of support for those affected by suicide. Every year, the walk aims to raise awareness on suicide among the Lebanese society and support those who have lost loved ones to suicide and those still struggling with suicidal thoughts. The walk is 1km towards Raouche Rock with a memorial wall at the end to encourage people to leave positive messages and personal stories as keepsakes. Like every year, more people this year were encouraged to share their stories and struggles and were supported by a community which meets every year to shed light on a topic still very much a taboo in our society.
