Several parts of the country have been hit by drought as people continue to suffer from a lack of clean water.

Villagers from Mahadapola in Nikawehera, Polpitihigama engaged in a traditional ritual atop the Madahapola Hill, invoking rain. They departed for the hilltop following a ritual at the Nikawehera Devalaya. They travelled in a perahera to the hilltop led by several elephants, where a ritual was performed at the Kande Devalaya.

The traditional ritual invoking rain was then held on the hilltop following a five-kilometre trek. The villagers’ prayers were answered.
