More than half of the prisoners in Malaysia are in for drug related offences. There are at least 350,000 drug dependents, many of them are without hope. Heroin dependency amounts for the majority, while marijuana and pills are popular. There is an increasing use of designer type drugs such as MDMA (Ecstasy), ICE (Methamphetamines), as well as abuse of prescription drugs, glue and petrol sniffing.
Most of the drug dependents are aged between 18-40 years, forgoing the most 'productive' years of their lives. Because of their drug dependency; many enter into prisons and government drug rehabilitation centers and some are HIV positive.
We are committed to help and care for drug dependents, prisoners, street people, ex-prisoners and their families.
