A delegation from the United Nations Children Fund (UNICEF) under Jonathan Crickx on Wednesday visited the Addiction Treatment & Abuse Fund with the aim of cementing cooperation in combating drug addiction and protecting children from smoking risks.

A press release issued by the fund said the delegation's visit comes to reaffirm the importance of Egypt's pioneering role in drug addiction combat.

Deputy Minister of Social Solidarity and the fund head Amr Othman reviewed the fund's efforts in carrying out programs of various activities including correcting wrong notions on drugs taken by youth and measures to involve the young addicts in society in the process of kicking off bad habits.

For his part, Crickx expressed his organization's readiness to cooperate with the fund in the field of protecting children from smoking risks.
