Severe drought in Tuvalu deprives citizens of water

Citizens in Tuvalu’s capital Funafuti have been imposed a cap of two water buckets a day due to severe drought in the small Pacific Island state, according to Reuters. The government has made an appeal to New Zealand and Australia to provide it with desalination equipment; air force planes from New Zealand and Australia did so on Friday. New Zealand Foreign Minister Murray McCully said he was optimistic about the help provided by the desalination equipment, saying that it “will help ease the critical shortage and should provide a sufficient buffer if the dry period continues as expected."
