SACM launches “Anti-Smoking Campaign”

The Saudi Arabian Cultural Mission (SACM) to Australia launched, on 12 June 2015, a two-week campaign aimed at raising Saudi sponsored students’ awareness of smoking detriments. The campaign sends messages through emails and through SACM’s social media channels. The main goal of the campaign is educating students on health, economical and social detriments of smoking. It also highlights the Islamic ruling on smoking. In its endeavours to urge smokers to quit, SACM circulated several messages to students and provided them with information about ways to quit and agencies, in Australia and Saudi Arabia, that can offer assistance in this regard. SACM also directed all Saudi Student Clubs in Australia to participate in the campaign. The campaign is one of SACM’s educational programs and initiatives posted to students through Twitter in addition to enlightening publications aimed at providing students with useful information for their successful study and wellbeing in Australia.
