Bibles for Refugees
Helping people recover from forced displacement by investing in their faith
We are working to provide at least one Bible for every Christian household in Kakuma refugee camp, Kenya.
Need: While this program began focused on the need for Bibles for Refugees in Kakuma refugee camp, Kenya, it has now grown to include IAFR ministry locations in Dzaleka refugee camp (Malawi) and the refugee ministry of I Live Again in Uganda. The majority of refugees in these camps are Christians. Few churches in these refugee camps and settlements have access to more than a handful of Bibles. The refugee population continues to grow in response to wars and violence in the region. The need for Bibles increases every year.
Goal: 50,000 Bibles in the major languages represented in these refugee contexts (e.g. Swahili, English, French, Dinka Bor, Nuer, Kinyarwanda, Kirundi, Arabic, Amharic, Maro, etc.)
Strategy: We are asking churches to encourage people within their communities to gift a Bible to a refugee household.
Opportunity: For every donation of US$ 10 designated to the "Bibles for Refugees" project, IAFR will gift a Bible to a refugee household. The Bibles will strengthen their faith and your gift will let them know that they are not forgotten by the church at large.
Progress: 19,279 Total Bibles delivered as of 7/2019.
