Plymouth, United Kingdom, April 20, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- Volunteers from Drug-Free World South West Tackle a threat to Physical and Mental Health.
The 7 April is “World Health Day” which marks the day in which the “World Health Organisation” was founded in 1948. This day is used to draw attention to priorities in global health.
A recent article published in the Plymouth Herald commented on the rise in the trafficking of drugs from 171 reported instances in 2015 to 197 in 2016. World Health Day is an opportunity to raise awareness of the health issues that drugs impose on a person.
Volunteers distributed over 1000 booklets containing facts about the most commonly used drugs, including Cannabis, Ecstasy, and Heroin. Such booklet distributions and awareness events focus on the prevention side of tackling the drugs problem, which affects all levels of society. Only when the facts are known can a person truly make an informed decision concerning drug use.
The Drug-Free World programme is sponsored by the Church of Scientology. Scientologists and other volunteers in Plymouth work to provide public and local organisations with the facts about drugs.
“Further events are planned in the coming months throughout Plymouth and the surrounding areas. We welcome support from other groups and individuals with a similar purpose,” says Lisa Coffey Community Affairs Director for the Church of Scientology.
