A Honiara woman has condemned recent discoveries of dead infants or foetus in various locations within the capital over the past weeks that were reported by this paper earlier.
Janet Lomuha, a Naha resident told this paper that such discoveries is evident that there is still a number of sick societies existing in our country where women and girls needs to be educated and cared for.
“This shows that there is a lack of awareness being made into our various societies and communities.
“Women and girls needs to be educated on how to make right decisions to avoid unwanted issues happening to them.
“At least, something must be done to stop such practices because it is now common in our societies today,” Mrs Lomuha said.
She added that, there are plenty of contraceptive methods made available in health centres which women and girls can make use of.
“If you don’t want to fall into an unwanted pregnancy dilemma, my advice for you girls especially is so seek help from our medical centres.
“I am sure they have the right message and actions for you to follow,” she added.
This paper understands that, the discoveries have brought the total of dead infants to two in less than a week, in just one month.
At the beginning of this month, an infant believed to be seven to eight months old was found dead at Naha Heights, in east Honiara. And then last Friday, workers at Ranadi rubbish dump in east Honiara discovered a body of a fully-formed baby being dumped at the site.
