Chennai is hit by one of the worst droughts of the century and citizens of the state are reeling under the severe water crisis that Tamil Nadu is presently facing. Now, it has caught Hollywood superstar Leonardo DiCaprio’s attention as well.
Leonardo posted a picture, which shows residents of Chennai, where almost all ground water has dried up, trying to take out water from a well. Along with the image, Leo wrote, “Only rain can save Chennai from this situation. A well completely empty, and a city without water. The southern Indian city of Chennai is in crisis, after the four main water reservoirs ran completely dry. The acute water shortage has forced the city to scramble for urgent solutions and residents have to stand in line for hours to get water from government tanks. As the water levels depleted, hotels and restaurants started to shut down temporarily, and the air con was turned off in the city’s metro. Officials in the city continue to try and find alternative sources of water — but the community continues to pray for rain.”
The Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation is working hard to tackle the climate crisis by promoting the best climate solution.
