In the annual commemoration of the international day against drug and illicit trafficking Reachout Centre Trust led other anti-drug partners and other civil society organizations.
Led by the organizations’ Executive director the celebrations started at Totonoka grounds along the Coast Provincial referral hospital, Digo road through Bondeni to Makadara grounds.
The community should take the lead role in fighting drug addiction, while the target remains our youths who are the mostly affected by the menace according to the recent report from the National Authority Against Drugs and Alcohol Abuse- NACADA.
RCT alone cannot quell the menace and we call on the religious, community, political, rights defenders and the government to unite in the fight against drug use as well as propagate for the realization of progressive drug policies and minimize the negative effects of drug use in the society.
Thank you our partners The Kenya Red Cross Society, Mvita Member of Parliament Hon Abdulswamad Shariff Nassir, UNODC, NACADA, County government of Mombasa among others for the participation and supporting our efforts.
