PDEA-ARMM commemorates Int'l Day Against Drug Abuse

Cagayan de Oro City (28 June) -- The Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency of the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) conducted a one-day inter-high school basketball tournament and series of lectures in observance of the International Day against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking (IDADAIT).

The IDADAIT is being celebrated every June 26. This year's theme is "Think Health Not Drugs."

Being the lead agency in the anti-drug campaign, we have the moral obligation to inspire the people and mobilize support for drug prevention through activities that provide the public, particularly the young people with the information, skills and opportunities they need to make healthy choices, including the choice to avoid using harmful drugs, PDEA-ARMM Acting Regional Director Bryan B. Babang said.

Babang also encouraged the youth to stay healthy and take part on the battle against illegal drugs.

The fight against illegal drugs is everybody's concern, especially the youth, the hope of our nation, he stressed.

PDEA-ARMM covers the provinces of Maguindanao and Lanao del Sur as well as the cities of Cotabato and Marawi. (PDEA-ARMM/PIA-Marawi) [top]
