Directorate of Health Services J&K organises a walkathon on ‘World No Tobacco Day’

On the occasion of ‘World No Tobacco Day’, the Tobacco Control Cell under the Directorate of Health Services of Jammu and Kashmir, organised a walkathon in Srinagar to raise awareness about the harmful effects of tobacco use and promote a smoke-free lifestyle.

The participants, primarily youth, held banners and signs to spread awareness about the dangers of tobacco and intoxicants.

Mohammad Amen, an English teacher at Candid Higher Secondary School and the rally’s overall in-charge said, “Students participated enthusiastically, showing their vigour and vitality. The program aimed to raise awareness and inform citizens about the disastrous health effects of tobacco and intoxicants. Such substances not only harm health but also damage one’s character and reputation in society.”

He added, “Nearly 200 students took part in the rally, delivering a clear message that all youths and individuals should be aware of the detrimental effects of intoxicants. These students, when they reach their homes, will further convey this message to their friends and family. These youths are the future of the nation and they must stay away from such substances.”

Amen also extended his gratitude to the ‘Health Department of Jammu and Kashmir’ and media persons who have supported them in this program, stating, “Displaying this event on various platforms will help our message reach millions.”
