Chile in throes of worst drought in decades. The Chilean government is handing out emergency rations of drinking water to help inhabitants through a drought crisis. Almost 90 communities, reportedly comprised of 120,000 people, have been classified as agricultural emergencies.

As the rivers and reservoirs dry up, there is huge crop damage and loss of animal lives. The drought is linked to La Nina weather pattern which in turn is believed to be due to climate change.

We sincerely pray that Chile and her warm-hearted people may soon experience the blessing of gentle rainfall in the affected areas. May all nations unite in harmonious action to safeguard our planet and her inhabitants.
