AFRICA

Please pray for the emergency food crisis currently afflicting the African continent. According to The Globe and Mail, “more than 40 million Africans in a dozen countries are now in need of humanitarian assistance because of food shortages that have expanded from the Horn of Africa to South Sudan and into the farthest corners of southern Africa. The disaster was triggered by the pressures of climate change… aggravated by a brutal civil war in South Sudan and the continued failings of governments”. Drought has prevented livestock & crops from surviving, creating a desperate situation of famine. Please pray for the food insecure, and for the provision of water and immediate aid for those in greatest need.
