Laurence from Switzerland
Laurence joined IMAlive in the summer of 2019 and has been responding to crisis chats ever since. She says about herself that she joined IMAlive because Laurence wanted to how to help in a crisis, to help someone else deal with stressful and difficult issues and hopefully making a different in someones life. Even saving one life will be a win. Considering that Laurence Laurence is never afraid of chats, no matter how hard they might get we can say that she has definitely achieved her goal and saved more than one life in her tenure with IMAlive so far.
Lada from Ireland
Lada has been an IMAlive volunteer since the spring of 2019. Supervisors always enjoy having her on shift with them as she has such a positive spirit and never backs down from a tough conversation while constantly showing compassion and empathy to everyone she interacts with. Lada joined IMAlive in the hopes of helping other people who are struggling and to be a shining light for someone else in a world that can sometimes seem so dark. While she has been a shining light for people in crisis she has also been a shining light within IMAlive.
We couldn’t be happier that Laurence and Lada are our volunteers of the month of November. Congratulations to both of you!
