Prayer for Chile Wildfires Victims: Urging Climate Action and Unity

9 Febbraio 2024

Let’s pray for Chile, where wildfires have claimed 122 victims in the Valparaiso region. Authorities report that two hundred people are missing in Viña del Mar, a popular beach area. The president has declared a state of emergency as people strive to recover from the disaster. These fires followed record temperatures in the country, coupled with low humidity and high wind speeds in central Chile due to El Niño. Scientists warn that such weather conditions can exacerbate disasters worldwide due to the high temperatures caused by climate change.
