Caritas supports campaign against drug menace

A massive protest against the drug and narcotics trade was held in Ragama (Colombo Diocese) on 30th July 2016 with the participation of a large number of school children, religious leaders, law enforcement officers and general public.

Organised by the Principal of Basilica Vidyalaya in Ragama, the march was led by the Archbishop of Colombo, His Excellency Cardinal Malcolm Ranjith who in his address on the occasion made a clarion call to especially “eradicate the sale of narcotics and intoxicants to school children”.


Caritas Sri Lanka supported this worthy endeavour by providing a large number of banners and placards displaying various slogans against the drug menace.
