Climate change: floods in the South West, dried up lake in the North West

Tuesday, November 29th, 2011

On Monday 21st November floods have killed eight people and made another 60,000 plus homeless in the SW provinces of Khuzestan and Kohgiluyeh and Boyer-Ahmad. Iran’s major relief charity, the Iranian Red Crescent Society, has been involved giving out temporary shelters and medical help. In the North West of the country there is still intense anger over Lake Urmia which is fast drying up. This will destroy much of the agriculture the area depends on. Locals blame the building of a dam. To allay this anger the government have recently promised over $200 million to rectify the problem.
It is in desperate poverty that people genuinely turn to God in their hearts. May this be the case in these two tragedies.

Pray for

• The flood victims in the South West of Iran
• The farmers in the North West
• For all who are in desperate need to hear the Gospel
