Around 180 guests attended the Singapore Anti- Narcotics Association (Sana) Charity Golf & Dinner held at Sembawang Country Club, which was presided by guest of honour Patrick Tay, Member of Parliament for West Coast GRC and Member, Government Parliamentary Committee for Home Affairs and Law. Every year, Sana works with corporate organisations to get sponsorships for golf flights, dinner tables and prizes. This year, the money raised went towards funding Sana’s holistic programmes. These include the Sana Badge Scheme, a preventive drug education programme for secondary school students who are members of uniformed groups; as well as Talk2Sana, which offers an online confidential chat service through which those who are affected by drug abuse are able to receive counselling and support in their recovery and reintegration journeys. The organisation also helps those recovering from addiction in areas such as tattoo removal, legal aid, job assistance, as well as training and skills upgrading. During the dinner, Sana clients Jasmine and Stephen shared deeply emotional stories, describing the toll that drug abuse had taken on their lives, driving home the essential role that Sana plays in working towards a drug-free Singapore.
