Community leaders, political parties urged to help eradicate drug abuse

KUALA LUMPUR Oct 31 - Community leaders and political parties were Sunday urged to help achieve Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi's vision of a dadah-free Malaysia.

In calling for their help, Women, Family and Community Development Minister Datuk Seri Shahrizat Abdul Jalil said drug abuse was a social ill which was extremely worrying and had to be taken seriously.

"We hope with the help and cooperation of leaders at all levels of society, we can go all-out against this scourge. We are concerned that this drug problem will spread throughout society," the Lembah Pantai MP said at a "buka puasa" and Hari Raya aid function in her constituency here Sunday night.

Shahrizat handed out RM100 cash and food to 43 elderly people, 43 single mothers, four disabled people, nine poor families and a patient.

Also present were Lembah Pantai UMNO head Datuk Shahrir Abdul Jalil and Kampung Pantai UMNO head Mohamad Abdullah.

Meanwhile, aid recipient Zahara Itam Mat Sidek, 67, thanked the government for the money and goodies which she said lifted her spirits for the coming Hari Raya.

She said it also alleviated some of her woes of caring for her son who was ill and no longer worked.

"I have no preparations for the Hari Raya as my son is ill and my husband is long deceased. I am thankful for the aid," she said.

For disabled teen Husaini Aliff, 17, the aid assisted in his life with his elderly grandmother Anjang Hashim, 76.

He said life was tough as he longer went to school because his mother could not afford it.
