According to the Indonesian Cirebon Agriculture and Farming Agency, this season’s severe dry spells may result in the failure of over 4,000 hectares of rice in 12 districts, causing a loss of crops and income to more than 12,000 farmers. Water reserves are so low that they are not enough to supply every field in need, and water distribution systems have also been damaged by the lack of precipitation.

We wish the people of Java a sufficient harvest to meet their needs as we pray for changes worldwide to help protect precious water reserves and provide plentiful sustenance for all.
