Prayer for Hope and Restoration in the Horn of Africa: Devastation and Displacement from Intensified Rainy Season

20 Novembre 2023

Let’s pray for the Horn of Africa, where the El Niño phenomenon has intensified the rainy season, resulting in torrential rains in Somalia (29 victims), Ethiopia (20 victims), and Kenya (15 victims). People have lost their homes, livestock, and farmland, leaving more than 300,000 people displaced in East Africa. Somalia, which experienced the worst drought in 40 years since 2020, is now completely covered by water in the southwest of the country. This significantly affects the population that relies on livestock and agriculture.
