Bible-based Trauma Healing brings comfort to people in Central African Republic.

In the last two years, conflicts between Christian and Muslim groups have ravaged the people of the Central African Republic (CAR). Local militias have committed brutal crimes and displaced citizens from their homes. In the wake of these events, 10,000 survivors in CAR are participating in ongoing Bible-based Trauma Healing sessions. These sessions allow displaced people to bring their pain and trauma to God for healing. The sessions recently spread into the capital city of Bangui.
Sylvain Ndjendole, general secretary of Bible Society in the CAR, says he is thankful for the generous partners who make Scripture-based healing available to thousands in his country. “I thank American Bible Society so much for supporting Trauma Healing in Central African Republic,” he says. “May God bless the people at American Bible Society so that they can continue to help us with finances and materials for the organization of this program in our country.”
Thanks to the support of our faithful financial partners, American Bible Society has been engaging people with the life-changing message of God’s Word for more than 200 years.
