International Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking
Singapore observes the ‘International Day against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking’ on 26 Jun every year. This year, our theme is ‘Life Does Not Rewind'. It aims to raise awareness of the major problems that illicit drugs present to society and at the same time, remind youths and adults not to make the mistake of experimenting with drugs as ‘life does not rewind’.
To commemorate this day, we have lined up some exciting activities for you, check out the key activities below!
