On the eve of International Day against Drug Abuse i.e on 25th June 2016, Antakshari Foundation, along with Bal Umang Drishya Sanstha (BUDS), and the associate partner Nada India foundation jointly organized an awareness rally against drug usage among the community. These organizations (NGO’s) are working in and around the area of Tis Hazari, Mori gate and also at Old Delhi railway station. The rally covered the overall area of 2kms and covered the areas like Rajendra market, Mori gate, Khanna market, Novelty bridge, Fateh puri and Old Delhi railway station. The reason for selection of such area is because these area are very close to railway station and people here
are more vulnerable and their tendency to use drugs is much more than people living other places. During this awareness camp pamphlets were distributed among beneficiaries who live around these areas so that the written preventions on pamphlets create an impression on the subconscious of the people who can read.
The rally resulted in direct beneficiaries of 120 which included 6 staff members of above NGOs and more than five thousand (approximately) where the indirect beneficiaries. Few slogans used during the rally where “Hazaro log Nasha chorte hai par marne ke baad”, “ Mera bharat, Nasha mukt bharat” , “jo kare drugs ka sevan, wo khoye jawani me apna jivan” etc.
