Pakistani region faces water shortage. Minister for Agriculture Syed Ali Nawaz Shah reported that this year’s 35 percent water shortage in the Sindh province of Pakistan will result in the failure of most crops if rain doesn’t arrive soon. Mr. Shah explained that even the monsoon season did not bring rain this year.

The seriousness of the matter requires consultation with the federal government for solutions, as well as an upcoming meeting planned between the irrigation minister and crop growers to discuss water distribution. Our prayers for the good people of Sindh as they await vital rain to enable their crops to feed the nation. May we all take steps to restore the plentiful state of our Earth through our conserving lifestyles and respect for all life.
