NoMoreButts

Tobacco Control Project

We discovered there was a number of refugee and migrant clients who used our services, that smoke. As an organisation that believes in the betterment of the society, we thrive on educating our clients on the impacts of smoking and how detrimental.

We understand there has been no direct correlation between refugees and migrant health promotion, we decided to take a risk an apply for this submission in order to best cater to the community. We believe working in partnership and in consultation with the community is what we do best.

We aim to reduce the number of tobacco users in Fairfield LGA within the Arabic, Chinese and Vietnamese communities by having a engaged approached that would have direct consultation with the community members.

Our Ambassadors of Change

No More Butts works with community leaders within the local area to be ambassadors of change.

Arabic Speaking Ambassador: Jalil

Mr. Jalil Doman

You can quit smoking!! There are a wide range of quit smoking strategies to choose from because different quit smoking methods will work better for different people. Choose the strategy that is best for you and your needs.

If this strategy doesn’t work, maybe another will. For many people, the best approach may be a combination of quit strategies.

Jalil Doman’s father died from a smoking-related illness and Jalil himself suffered from severe throat inflections. He started smoking as a young student, but the infections made him reflect on what his life might be like in 20 to 30 years’ time. Quitting changed his life.

Mr. John He

Stress from studying and working set John on a dangerous path – smoking for 14 to 15 years. He cut out the cigarettes last year after many failed attempts.

How will this happen?

We are working together with the Arabic, Chinese and Vietnamese communities - to get involved!

We're holding educational workshops and info-session with bilingual educators as well as running a media campaign aligned with this to highlight the take away learning to the community groups. A framed message that is created by the community will then have community members wanting to be a part of change.
