The Slovak Bible Society is the only organisation in Slovakia that is able to provide printed Scripture suitable for people with visual disabilities. Until recently no resources have been available and so people with visual disabilities and elderly people with failing eyesight have not been able to engage with God’s Word to the extent they would like to. The Slovak Bible Society began by putting Mark’s Gospel into giant print and distributing it to care homes and hospices. This was met with such enthusiasm that they are now working to make the whole New Testament available in giant print.
