Pray for Djibouti - facebook page

As recent as the late 1970s, Djibouti was a fertile country where farmers grew their crops providing food for their nation. Today Djibouti imports food from Ethiopia to feed its one million people. In the last ten years in particular, water sources have dried up. Rainfall has decreased, temperatures have increased and the sea levels have risen contaminating inland water sources with salt. The capital city has only half the water it needs to meet its actual needs, so water is only available half the week.

Pray for wisdom as the nations of the world contemplate how to plan for a future where climate change increasingly becomes a reality (The Bible, Proverbs 2:6).
