AS AN organisation that exists to prevent suicide, Befrienders International is concerned about the revelations in the article 'Manual on suicide sold to children' (Sunday Morning Post May 7). We are naturally concerned that such a manual should be available. We would also like to remind the public of our hotline, which will include a Cantonese line from tomorrow. The line - 2382 0000 - will be open from 7 pm to 7 am, seven days a week. Befrienders International also provides an English Service (2896 0000) which is in operation 24 hours a day.
