You can donate if you have the money to spare. You can talk to them and make them feel better. You can refer them to 7cups or send them their countries suicide hotline if they're in any risk.
There are lots of ways that you can help people in other countries. One is that you can donate to charities. In addition to this charities, schools and other organisations sometimes fund projects where you can go out to other countries and help people. You can also volunteer for places like holiday camps where you can help as well. The final way I can think of to help people in other countries is this website; here the listeners connect with people from lots of different countries.
become long distance friends, call each other or text everyday, send letters to one another and try communicate feelings but chatting bout them daily.
There are plenty of ways to do that . theres Unicef and you can donate school supplies to poor countries like Africa and Asia the kids there really appreciate it . World Vision is also a great way to help .
I think we are helping others in other countries, moreso worldwide. there are hundreds of people that come on here everyday, from all over the world. and we are able to assist them as listeners.

I make things for my church and then give them to my pastor who gives them to our mission trip. The mission trip takes them over there and whatever I make helps them. Because not many people have everything they need. it cheers them up to recieve something made just for them.
You can try providing help, by hearing their problems. No matter where they are in which country, we are all the same. We all have same problems from time to time.
Cross cultural knowledge is important to understanding and relating. Women's issues are one area where global location has a massive influence on personal stories. If you don't know much about the political and socio economic factors outside your own environment, then brush up on it through news and your own discovery. Keep in mind that cultural values play an influence on how someone perceives themselves and their options. Women in Muslim countries, parts of Africa, India and Asia may not have the same resources for protection and support - alienation from family support is therefore often a crucial factor in their sense of security. TedTalks on YouTube has fabulous videos on lots of subjects relevant to the support we give here. Addiction, relationships, domestic violence, etc... Check it out and always keep building bridges by expanding your own awareness.
You can always help people in different areas of the world. It might not be so effective since you can't really embrace the other person face-to-face.. but that doesn't mean you can't be there for somebody when they need to talk about something.
we are all connected via the sunlight, the wind, the water, the earth, the decision we take every day. People in other countries can be listened and as a result they will be helped
The internet is a beautiful place that connects the world, I suggest you get to know the each other - not just their struggles but their likes, interests, cultures and traditions - see them as a human not as a disorder
I can do a lot of things. Obviously I do this. I listen to people. In general though I show that I care. I can show that I won't stand for the hurt and pain people have.
By being on this site, i have reached out to people thousands of miles away from me. The special thing about that is that all i have to do is listen, really hear them out. I fin dthat most of them ALREADY KNOW WHAT THE MATTER IS its just a matter of holding up the mirrior
Helping people in other countries may sound like quite the challenge! Fear not, as people experience the same emotions all around the globe. When helping people in other countries, it is often beneficial to leave a tab open just for Google while you chat. This tab can give you quick incite, offer resources specific to the country your member/guest is from, and maybe even teach you some new things in the process! If ever you feel you can't help your member/guest, don't hesitate to refer them to a listener that may be more able to help out. Always ask your member/guest before doing this! Remember there is no shame in having another listener take over. We all have different levels of experience and specialize in different areas. Keep it fun, safe, and do your best!
Give them advice like you would any other individual in america or a state that you live in, because they need your help no matter what situation is
Emotional support is stronger than the distance , you can communicate with them online and give them your emotional support :)
The best way would be to go to other countries in person, but that's not an option for everyone. Consider supporting local, cultural accommodation groups, or even volunteering in one yourself.
As long as communication isn't a barrier due to language or technology, you can extend verbal and resource support to anyone on the planet, and some in space. However, it helps to know more about the country - the environment contributes to a person's health and thought process. Some things that are not a big deal in your country may be considered strange in theirs, so it helps to have a little sociopolitical knowledge. Additionally, one can look up the resources in that country (eg AA hotline etc), and direct the person accordingly if need be. Place yourself in their shoes. And in their country.
I found it easier to start up conversations that made people comfortable when they were from a country other than mine because it was a good conversation starter and meant they could talk about themselves and get used to me asking questions. Although flaws were cultural barriers even between UK and US things like religion are viewed extremely differently so it's hard to know what is an inoffensive way of talking about it (it would be pretty good to have a training task on religion and appropriate ways to articulate in other cultures). I also found it easier to talk to people from other countries and vise-versa because there seemed to be less impact if they were far away and like you're less lonely if someone from a hole other culture gets your problem.
To help, is to channel your energy and your time and other means that you can provide to better something. And since you're on 7cups, the most obvious answer would be to become a listener. 7cups allows people from all over the world to come and be them beautiful selves and express themselves however they like. A listener helps making them happen by lending their ears, and providing time, energy and opportunity. It's just helping others at its simplest form.
Simple - By doing the help in your country , you can help other . Charity begins at home . first you help yourself , then you can extend the support to the needy.
You can check online perhaps and google how to help to other countries. You can go to local churches or ministries which might also help and reach out to other countries in need.
The internet. 7cups of tea is a great site to hep people. Ive also used tumblr to help people who just need someone to talk to. I know there is other sites as well like this one you could use.
Learn about their culture, interact and observe and don't be judgmental. People say a lot about where they come in few minutes of interaction :)
By knowing other languages,and by investigating hot lines- or help centers around the world,so that we can inform them
Talk to people in other countries like you would someone in your country iv there is a language barrier then maybe pass them to someone who can speak there language but make sure you try and help them as much as possible!
It depends on how you want to help. Usually, it involves finding a humanitarian organization,and most often, it involves sending money. There are also opportunities like construction or teaching, which are more hands on.
Just by talking to them. Sometimes people just need to talk to someone, to be heard and to feel some support. You can always provide here, for example! And if you mean material support, then you can always do some donations.
To help people in other countries you can widen your spoken languages. Also make sure to post all spoken languages in your biography so people know xx
