In May 1997 MADA arranged its first public meeting at village Bhamman (Jallo) adjucant to Pakistan India Border. The Public Meeting was attended by the villagers of Bhamman and nearby villages. In Pakistan normally public meetings are held on religious and political issues but MADA public meeting was on the issue of drugs. In this public meeting the late Muhammad Rafi Numberdar of the area announced that nobody in his villages will sell or use heroine.
