INTERNATIONAL DAY AGAINST DRUG ABUSE AND ILLICIT TRAFFICKING
DRUG ADDICTION DESTROYS LIVES, TEARS APART FAMILIES AND HARMS SOCIETIES. LET’S FIGHT AGAINST THIS EVIL AND MAKE THE WORLD DRUG FREE.
Teen drug abuse can have a major impact on a child’s life. Teens who experiment with drugs put their health and safety at risk. June 26 marks The International Day against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking, which is also referred to as World Drug Day. It was established by the United Nations General Assembly in 1987 which raises awareness on creating an international society free of drug abuse and its illicit trafficking.
To take an initiative in this regard, RKS has launched a virtual campaign standing against drug abuse and illicit trafficking by organising an Article writing and Poster Making Activity to emphasize the need to improve the understanding of the drug problem among adolescents and how in turn, better knowledge will foster greater apprehension for countering its impact on health.
The Global theme for the 2020 International Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking is, “Better Knowledge for Better Care”. Enlighten your child on how drug abuse can have a detrimental effect on peoples’ lives and what can be done to ensure a drug free world.
