Proud To Be Global Campaign

29 02 2012

A French singer, Chimène Badi,  has decided to help raise awareness of counterfeit drugs through the INTERPOL Proud To Be campaign and she will be a Proud To Be goodwill ambassador. Ms. Badi will help raise awareness of fake medicines through concerts and public events. She will also be singing on a Proud To Be album which also involves a number of international artists which will be released in the Spring of this year.

I thought it was really cool that Ms. Badi would be interested and would want to do this because she became more aware of counterfeits. She state that “When I learnt of the extent of the problem of fake medicines, that they can harm people close to me, as well as children, women, and entire families, I immediately accepted to support the Proud To Be campaign.” She also said that “This plight affects the health of entire communities, which is so precious. I feel it is my duty to play my part in informing the general public about the harm caused by fake medicines, including those sold on the Internet.”

INTERPOL’s Proud To Be campaign was launched in October 2011 when two of Africa’s leading musicians, South Africa’s Yvonne Chaka Chaka and Senegal’s Youssou N’Dour, collaborated on a song which saw its first ever live public performance by Yvonne Chaka Chaka at a special event in Nairobi.
