Throughout the past year, Turkey has suffered an intense drought. In 2020, important agricultural regions of the country received just 30 millimeters of precipitation, as opposed to 80 millimeters in 2019.
Joe Willey of SAT-7 USA says, “Recent rain and snow have caused a slight rise in Istanbul’s reservoirs, but it’s still a dangerous situation. Experts in the region say if there isn’t adequate rainfall in the next two to two and a half months, there will be water shortages in the summer.”
SAT-7 Türk has been covering the drought on its weekly news programs, as well as the show Worldview. Willey says, “Now, the presenters of this program, they not only focused on the drought and its implications for Turkey, but they also looked at the issue from a biblical perspective. They looked at how God has given us the responsibility to care for His creation, and how we have to act in accordance with His word.”
