Candid Portraits 43: Cheers

According to statistics 30% of the South African population is addicted to alcohol and 8% to drugs. Statistics in this country are not always very precise but it provides an indication. In the Western Cape with the wine producing areas the alcohol addiction is even worse. According to a social worker we spoke a few years ago in Robertson (on of the four main wine producing areas) around 70 percent of the born and bred Robertsonians of ALL walks of life are born with a Phetal Alcohol Syndrome (PAS).
