A ladies programme was also hosted at the Girls Madrassah in Mayfair on Friday morning.
Jumuah bayaans on the drug menace took place at Masjid Mu'aaz bin Jabl (Crosby) and Masjid Taqwa (Homestead Park).
On Friday afternoon a special programme for most of the Makatib in the Mayfair district saw over 300 learners participating in an interactive programme on substance abuse.
Muallims and Muallimas said they were ‘impressed’ by the talks presented and acknowledged the benefit of the DAD programme for the learners.
On Friday evening the DAD team presented a programme for the public at the JSS Hall.
Ulama of the area that were present expressed their appreciation to the DAD Team on the importance and relevance of the programme.
Darul Uloom programme
On Saturday, 02 March Ulama and students - both male and female - from three Darul Ulooms were invited to Madrassah Saadiqeen for a specialized programme on substance abuse.
Positive feedback was received from all who attended.
Darul Ihsan Humanitarian Centre thanks the communities of Mayfair, Homestead Park and Crosby for their participation and hosting of the ‘Drug Awareness Drive’ programmes in their respective areas.
The impact of drug and substance abuse in our society is a very real, relentless and brutal phenomenon.
Consequently the DAD team strategizes its programme around ‘Drug Dynamics, Perspective, Analysis and Solutions’ - with visual presentation using slides and video clips - for the sole purpose and intention to help and educate our community. The sustained campaign has enjoyed significant feedback and community involvement is encouraging.
May Allah Ta’ala accept this humble effort, make it easy for those whose lives are affected by the incidence of drug and substance abuse and protect our families and the Ummah.
