This week, a community fights back against the scourge of drug addiction in Sagaing region.
“Every time I go shopping at the market, I worry about my wife and kids being murdered or raped or robbed at home by drug users,” says U Ba Sein.
Ba Sein is leading a community anti-narcotics team in one of Myanmar’s most drug-affected villages, Kyun Hla Khone near Kawlin.
