With your support for the past two years, we have hosted the World Overdose Awareness Day in Naufar, in Doha, Qatar.
The primary goal of our one-week event is to raise awareness in a culture where the stigma around addiction is tremendous. Our staff has been dedicating several sessions with our patients on overdose.
This year, we also launched a video from one of our pharmacists explaining overdose prevention and Naloxone. This video is published on all our social media channels.
The patients placed small purple flags on the grass at Naufar main entrance to remember those who lost the battle. Our building lit up purple the whole week.
We have also asked our patients and staff to write messages on small butterflies hanged in our lobby.
We sent a press release to the local media about the event.
