2019 HEB Ashram Family Day
HEB-Ashram Family Day (2019)
2019 began with a significant milestone event for one of our beneficiaries, HEB-Ashram. Their 20th anniversary was celebrated at their HEB-Ashram Family Day on 6 January 2019, at HEB-Ashram Halfway House located in Sembawang. NCADA was delighted to be part of this momentous occasion, commemorating the provision of rehabilitation and re-integration services to ex-drug abusers over the past two decades.
The HEB-Ashram Family Day 2019 highlights the importance and role of family support in reintegration. Another objective of the event was to reinforce the value of community acceptance as ex-drug abusers navigate their way back into regular life. Ngee Ann Polytechnic (NP) was roped in to help drive the anti-drug message among the younger generation. On event day, more than 70 students set up booths aimed at helping event attendees understand the key role family and society play in the reintegration of exdrug abusers. PDE slogans by CNB and NCADA were displayed throughout the event, reinforcing the overall anti-drug message. NCADA Chairman, Mr Hawazi Daipi was present alongside the Guest-of-Honour Mr Masagos Zulkifli, then Minister for the Environment and Water Resources. Overall, the event reached a total of 430 guests and at least 140 youths.
