THERE is need for the government, churches, woman organisations and non-government organisations to help decrease family domestic violence at Northwest Choiseul.

This is according to Mr Nerio Ulemiki the media coordinator for Christ the King Parish at Voruvoru reporting.

Mr Ulemiki says the numbers of unreported cases of family domestic violence are increasing at Northwest Choiseul as from observation, there are many cases where women have become victims ending up at the rural clinics.

“Some of the main causes of domestic violence in Northwest Choiseul identified are poverty stress, excessive drinking of beer and homemade breweries situations, consumption of drugs, forced sex, gambling, outside logging activities and from other anti-social behaviours,” said Ulemiki.

“People of the area are suggesting the need for the government, churches, women organisations and non-government organisations to help control this situation.”
