Port Moresby Governor Parkop Calls on PNG Churches to Pray for Rain over Australia

Port Moresby City Governor Powes Parkop is calling on PNG Churches and their members to pray to God during Sunday service for rain over Australia starting as the raging busfire is devouring lives, homes, businesses, animals, environment and ecology, and other properties across the country.

His call comes amidst collaborative efforts to extinguish the fire across the country had helped little or not fully abated it.

He said the weather pattern in Australia expected rainy seasons to set in between December and March.

He said they could not stand and watch helplessly as their longtime friend Australia being devastated by bushfire.

"I call on our people of all faith and belief to pray and chant for rain. This includes our traditional rain makers of PNG," he said whilst conveying his sympathy to the people of Australia who have been its victims.

Governor Parkop continued that he would mobilize the city for disaster appeal initiated by Environment and Conservation Minister Wera Mori, Gulf Governor Haiveta and others to help the victims.

He stated that in the long run PNG Government should secure an agreement with the Australian Government as soon as possible to pipe water from PNG to Australia to ensure that during the dry season, they can still keep the areas within their houses and farms wet so they are safe from such wildfire.

"On a global scale, Australia must join as soon as possible the global effort against Climatic Change. They have been dragging their feet for too long and have been Climatic Change skeptics for no good reasons," he said.

New Zealand, the United States of America and Canada have already deployed firefighters to Australia to help stop the wildfire.
