Drunkards Association Of Ghana To Embark On A Mission To Reduce Children Alcoholics

The President of Drunkards Association of Ghana Moses Onya popularly known as Dry Bones has announced that their membership is increasing steadily and the rate of alcohol consumption in the country is increasing. He said their membership is now about 6.6 million people in the country.

This he attributed to the fact that people are going through lots of problems in the country, both financially and emotionally. Due to this many have resorted to the intake of alcohol to reduce their pressure. He said the alcohol intake has risen to 1.5 gallons. He added that this has created jobs for people as people have been employed in bars and restaurants.

However, what troubles him is the increasing number of children who are becoming alcoholics. He said the government tried to reduce the adverts on alcoholic beverages on the media, but that did not help. He detailed that as an association, they intend to embark on a mission to advise children to desist from the intake of alcohol.
