International Cooperation to Save Drug-Addicted Kids
Date:5/26/2009

TROIS-RIVIERES, Quebec, May 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Over an eight-day period, during the first week of May, the Executive Director of Narconon Nepal was able to deliver nine drug education lectures to over three-thousand Nepali children living in the United Kingdom. "Our kids brought their drug problem along with them and found new ones here," comments Basanta Raj Kunwar, executive director, Narconon Nepal.

Basanta was a 23-year veteran of the Nepali police force and was also the former superintendent of the Nepal police force. He came all the way from Kathmandu, Nepal to deliver his drug education lectures, and was also able to reach 525,000 people through Nepali radio, TV, and newspapers.

Mr. Kunwar has been dedicated to the cause of eradicating drug addiction for quite some time; in fact, prior to him opening a Narconon center, he was researching solutions for better drug rehabs in Kathmandu. When he retired from the police force, he was able to provide a drug rehab to Nepali youth through his own charitable foundation, Pratigya; however, it stru
