Praying for Africa: Urgent Call for Environmental Awareness and Solidarity

27 Aprile 2024

Let’s pray for Africa, affected by heavy rains causing victicms, floods, landslides, and displacements. In Tanzania, at least 155 people have been killed due to floods and landslides, while 55,000 households have been destroyed, affecting 200,000 people. In Kenya, 35 people have been reported dead, and the number could increase as the situation is not yet under control. In Nigeria, 100 inmates escaped from a prison after heavy overnight rains destroyed parts of the facility. Authorities have recaptured 10 inmates, while the police are searching for the others.
