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: Kakuma refugee camp is host to over 200,000 women, children and men, many of whom are Christians. Few churches in the camp have access to more than a handful of Bibles. The refugee population continues to grow in response to wars and violence in the region. In 2016, the government opened a new refugee settlement just 7 miles down the road from Kakuma. The need for Bibles increases every year.
Goal: 30,000 Bibles in the major languages represented in Kakuma (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 for "Bibles for Refugees", 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.
