Khan while speaking to media said that in a country with a majority young population it is unacceptable to have such prevalence of modern tobacco products.
This competition represents the true voices of our youth and aims to make them aware of the menace of modern tobacco products.
“Involving youth in awareness campaign like these where adults and teen-agers are taking anti-tobacco initiatives in their hands has proved successful in kicking tobacco consumption habit and dissuade hundreds of thousands of young people from taking it up”, Shariq said.
The postcard campaign is continuity of last year’s Chromatic’s awareness drive through which the trust’s message was conveyed to millions of children across Pakistan about the dangers of smoking and how it harms their precious health.
The success of last year’s competition compelled Chromatic to continue their efforts through social and digital media with an aim to aware youth about the side effects of tobacco products especially nicotine pouches.
