The National Narcotics Agency (BNN) collaborates with Best Western resort to conduct anti-drug campaign at Bali Bomb Monument in Legian, Kuta.
The campaign is a sequence of celebrating International Anti-drug Day followed by dozens staffs of BNN and Best Western that was began with signing on the cloth banner set on the fence of Bali Bomb Monument.
The campaign theme is “Global Action for Healthy Common without Drugs” aiming at creating clean environment without drugs and encouraging people awareness on negative impact of drugs.
Some people visiting the Bali Bomb Monument were asked to participate in the event.
Besides, the anti-drugs volunteers also distributed brochure asking people to avoid drugs, stickers and key chains to the people heading to Kuta Beach.
“Through the anti-drugs campaign I hope the four Best Western hotels located in Bali could make people aware including themselves on the dangers of drugs that spread in the community and this event is a part if CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility),” said the General Manager of Best Western Kuta Beach Alit Martini.
Meanwhile, the Head of BNN Bali, Budiartha, is open for the action of Best Western to campaign for anti-drugs in the Island of Gods, which is more worrying.
“The action aims at encouraging people to defend themselves from the dangers of drugs,” he said while signing the anti-drugs campaign banner at Bali Bomb Monument.
He expected that people not try the drugs because if they’ve entered the circle once it’ll be hard to get out from the drug users circle.
Now the number of drug users is still high reaching 50,553 people, which is 1.8 percent of the total population in Bali and in 2013 it is predicted that it could be 2.2 percent.
