Wise Up Wednesday: Please Help – Suicide As A Result Of Coronavirus

It’s with great sadness that this week’s ‘Wise Up Wednesday’ is sharing the Construction News story of a construction worker who lost lost his life because of Coronavirus two weeks ago.

“He did not die on an intensive care bed though, with a machine trying to breath for him. And he will not be included in the grim daily COVID-19 fatality statistics. This worker died in his family home. He took his own life.

The man had been laid off, like thousands of others, as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. He was struggling to manage debt problems before the disease took hold of the country, and losing his job was the last straw.”

The nation’s support systems simply cannot cope with the demand, and this is where the Lighthouse Club is endeavouring to provide emergency financial aid to those affected so that they can buy food for their families. They are also providing mental well being support but, tragically, as happened two weeks ago, it was too late.

It’s A Simple Appeal
