Alcohol consumption raises concern


HIGH rate of alcohol consumption in Choiseul is raising concern from women and children of the province expressing the practise as a threat.

Ms Jenny Onoto the Women’s Coordinator at Christ the King Parish Voruvoru Mission Station, Northwest Choiseul, during a recent Chiefs Leadership summit workshop highlighted the concern.

She showed in her report that alcohol consumption is one of the biggest contributing factors to a lot of anti-social behaviours amongst their communities.

“Consuming alcohol at public places and family residences causes disturbances and insecurity to women and children. Continuous practise also contributes to financial problems,” said Ms Onoto.

Ms Onoto is calling on local Chiefs and the police to help decrease the rate of alcohol consumption in their area and the province as a whole.
