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.

In 1997, a UK court finalized a decision allowing former Gurkha soldiers to seek citizenship for themselves and their families within the United Kingdom. After that decision was made, more then 100,000 Gurkha people immigrated to the UK. Unfortunately, like any culture immigrating to different countries, drug problems do tend to follow. Originally from Nepal, Gurkhas take their name from an eighth-century Hindu warrior named Guru Gorakhnath. Throughout history, Gurkhas are best known for their bravery and strength within the British Army's Brigade and the Indian Army.

Mr. Kunwar was invited to the United Kingdom by the UK Nepali Association and gave drug education lectures across the greater London area. 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. "Drug abuse and addiction miseries migrate with populations," says Mr. Kunwar, "and with our growing Narconon network, we have workable solutions; I should know."

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 struggled to see any real results. Basanta then discovered the Narconon program and took the time to learn about what it had to offer. He was so amazed by the workable solutions, he opened a 100-bed program in Kathmandu, and is continuing his dedication to save lives and terminate the drug problem in Nepal.
