Queen Letizia of Spain, the honorary president of the Foundation for Help against Drug Addiction (Fad), chaired the working meeting held at Foundation Headquarter in Madrid. The meeting discussed mid-term objectives that are set out in each line of action: research; programs and training; Development Cooperation and awareness.
During the meeting, the new strategic plan of Fad 2021-2023 was presented. The representative also talked about the effects that COVID19 has had on Fad’s activities.
The Fad is a private, non-profit, non-denominational and independent institution of a charitable-welfare nature, and endowed with consultative status with category II of the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations. The Fad’s fundamental mission is to prevent drug use and other risky behaviors that impede or hinder the personal and social development of adolescents.
Created in 1986 at the initiative of Manuel Gutiérrez Mellado -president of the institution until his death in 1995- with the support of companies, institutions and professionals, the Fad carries out its activities in collaboration with other civil society organizations that understand that the problems of Drugs require a solidary response, which must be articulated mainly from the field of prevention. Her Majesty the Queen is the honorary president of this institution since 2015, a responsibility in which she succeeds Her Majesty Queen Sofía.
Fad has been working in Latin America, especially in Central America, since 1995. Since then, more than 150 Development Cooperation projects have been developed in collaboration with different entities, in 11 different countries -in addition to Development Education projects in Spain- and reaching more than one and a half million beneficiaries.
