Established in 2022, Sahar, a non-profit organization for online support, aims to provide anonymous, immediate assistance to people experiencing emotional distress and suicidal ideation.

Sahar operates an extensive website, complete with self-help content and reference to mental help services in the community, along with a podcast that focuses on mental health.

Sahar is the only organization in Israel that specializes in exclusively online support, for mental health and emotional wellbeing purposes.

Sahar’s online services are provided free of charge, in both Hebrew and Arabic, by 250 volunteers. Every day, they ‘meet’ hundreds of people in distress online, offer them support and assistance.

Sahar volunteers regularly and actively visit relevant websites including social media, to detect distress signals online, intervene in crises situations, and alert the police in case of immediate danger, self-hurt or suicide.

Thanks to Sahar volunteers, their presence and activity online and in social media, thousands of lives were saved thus far. Moreover, dozens of thousands of people have found significant relief for their mental and emotional distress, in their talks to Sahar volunteers.

Volunteering

"Volunteering in Sahar changed my life. Today I am no longer afraid to face the pain.
Thanks to volunteering, I know myself better, and it’s the best gift I could ever give myself."

Volunteering for people in distress is at the very heart of Sahar’s activity. Sahar volunteers are the creative, operating and driving force of our support channels. They are present and active in the virtual space, helping anyone who expressed distress online, and even proactively monitoring those who expressed their pain and did not necessarily seek help. We recruit the volunteers, train them professionally to perform their functions, guide, accompany and empower them.

Volunteering from home

Apart from the training period, the volunteering is conducted once a week from home, during the evening. It only requires the volunteer to have a computer and an internet connection.

Fascinating training course

The course provides in-depth, theoretical and practical training that includes useful volunteering tools. During the entire volunteering period, our professional team will accompany and guide volunteers on an ongoing basis.

Meaning and Satisfaction

Thanks to the volunteers' contribution, Sahar successfully brings significant relief to those dealing with emotional distress. 

Come join us, and take part in a welcoming, open and warm volunteer community!

"Volunteering at Sahar cannot be measured in money.
It’s a privilege to give, to grow, to know, to open up and also to try and let in some light,
in the darkest moments of those who turn to us..."
