Rotary teams up with Quezon City on drug drive
THE Rotary Club of Kamuning or RoCK and the Quezon City government have partnered in the war against drugs.
Leonard Lim, RoCK president, declared their support to Mayor Herbert Bautista’s continuing anti-drug campaign during the 23rd “Alay ng Rotary sa Araw ng Kabataan” arts and culture competitions held recently at the Amoranto Sports Stadium.
“As parents, we know how dangerous drugs are to our children. It ruins our children’s future,” Lim said. “By partnering with the city government and pulling our efforts together, we can make a bigger difference for them in this war against drugs.”
RoCK has since been working closely with Bautista in preventing drug use among the youth. The mayor was a former club president.
“In our own little way, we want to help the city government fight the problem of drugs and teach our youth become responsible and law-abiding citizens,” Lim said.
Apart from the intensified law enforcement operations against drug suspects, the city government has launched the “Save the User” drug treatment program for thousands of drug offenders who have surrendered to authorities.
Last Saturday, more than 10,000 students, parents, school officials and spectators participated in the 23rd Alay ng Rotary sa Araw ng Kabataan, the biggest youth program organized by RoCK to reintroduce millennials to traditional Filipino arts and culture.
