Comrades   Bibles for R BR 4 Run For Bible Rands supporting 10 June 2018
WHERE IT MATTERS MOST
The money we raise through the #Comrades4Bibles charity are applied where it matter most and literally goes to the needy and the poorest of the poor, there where it matters most. By far the biggest project benefiting from these donations is the schools project where the Bible Society of South Africa make available Bibles free of charge to learners in schools in the poorest parts of our country. Grade 7 learners are the target group for this project because they can read with understanding. They are at the start of their teenage years and are especially impressionable. The biblical message can help to establish a value system which will assist them in making the right choices. Because the BSSA cannot do this on their own they rely on Churches and Christian organisations to identify the schools in need of Bibles. Each child also receives a booklet ‘Help! How should I read my Bible?’  In 2017, 24 611 Grade 7 learners in schools mainly in poor areas of our country, received a Bible of their own. These donations are also applied to the literacy projects to promote basic literacy, as well as Bible literacy, especially among children in the foundation stages of education through Bible-based literacy material. In 2017, though the prison outreach project, 15 871 prisoners received a Bible of their own thanks to this project. Our prisons in South Africa face various challenges, overcrowding, infectious deceases and violations of basic human rights, to mention just a few, and this is where the Bible brings hope. The Directorate of Spiritual Care of the Department of Correctional Services manages the distribution of these Bibles on behalf of the Bible Society of South Africa and these Bibles become the property of the prisoners. The Bible Listening Programme, serving the deaf and visually impaired community, is yet another crucial area where funds are desperately needed. R250 000 is needed for the Bible Listening Programme in 2018.
