Many people continue to languish in pain emanating from the mental wounds that have been inflicted on them by difficult situations in life. Many hurt in silence and secretly yearn for help. Some are unaware that they need help, whereas others do not know if they could trust anyone to help them.

Bible Society of Kenya reaches out to individuals that have gone through shocking and traumatizing experiences and walk with them through the healing path so that they can also help others with the healing process.

Participants are drawn from Churches, Non Governmental organizations, media, government, prisons, military, children’s homes, community leaders etc.

Objectives

1.To sensitize regional and national leaders on trauma healing programme and implementation
