Kpanlogo Yede ry, a multicultural association based in Vaasa, Finland joins Sound Lion Records(SLR) global campaign to bring awareness to addiction and the opioid crisis around the world. For over 10 years, Kpanlogo Yede Ry have been working with organizations using music and dance to promote diversity and unity between people of all races.
The organization intends to use this collaborative effort to bring awareness to addiction and the opioid crisis using music and dance. Addiction is a chronic disease with biological, psychological and environmental factors that affects millions of people around the world. According to the World Health Organization “ It is estimated that globally, around 164 million people had an alcohol or drug use disorder in 2016”
The campaign is officially scheduled to commence on March 27, 2020 using the song title “Mama Don’t Give Up”. The song written by Lewis Kofi Nana Antwi (Nana Kottens) provides inspiration and hope to individuals and families struggling with addiction. After the initial release, the campaign will continue throughout the year with different versions featuring various groups and musicians around the world.
Addiction is a disease of the brain, not lack of will. As a society, as one nation and as one global body let's support our loved ones struggling with the disease.
