The Friendship Zone Association and the Drug Law Enforcement Agency have over the weekend held a daylong sensitisation campaign on the dangers of illicit drugs.
The forum was held at Madalah Upper and Senior Secondary School in Kunkujang.
Head of the school, Mr. Omar Touray said this will help his students to know the dangers of illicit drugs in the society and called on the organisers to do similar programmes in other schools.

Jay Jallow of Friendship Zone said the Association is non-profit which is working with donor agencies to complement government’s efforts in developing the country.
He added that the Association’s main target is women and children because they are the most vulnerable in the society.
