SINGAPORE - The Anti-Drug Abuse Campaign is celebrating its 20th anniversary with a two-day carnival at Suntec City Convention Centre.
The Anti-Drug Abuse Carnival, which begins today, features an exhibition of how the community and the Government worked together since 1995 to raise awareness about the dangers of drugs and to rally support for the anti-drug cause.
Visitors can look forward to games and activities infused with anti-drug and healthy lifestyle elements.
They can also make an anti-drug pledge using their own mobile devices and see their pledge projected onto the media wall at the carnival.
Other members of the public can also submit their own anti-drug pledge using their mobile devices at http://bit.ly/1Fi2Tx8, by July 31.
Speaking at the opening ceremony of the carnival today, Second Minister for Home Affairs Masagos Zulkifli urged Singaporeans to work together towards a drug-free community here.
"All of us have a part to play in this effort - parents, educators, and most importantly, our youths themselves. Together, let us work as one community to win the fight against drugs, and work towards a drug-free Singapore," he said.
At the carnival, Mr Masagos also launched Nelzon, a new mobile game app that educates users about drug prevention. It was developed by students from Nanyang Polytechnic's School of Interactive and Digital Media.
