When a billion-dollar dam collapsed in July 2018, it left at least 35 dead and over 7,000 homeless. The Laotian government called in an international team of experts to investigate the dam failure. Months later, the investigations are ongoing, but work on approximately 50 dams still continues. With hundreds more dams planned for the country, environmentalists are sounding the alarm that the Mekong River system in Laos could be devastated, along with the lives of those relying on it. Ask God to intervene, bringing wisdom, and pray that the government will be open to international advice (The Bible, Proverbs 12:15).
