Many women and children in Suriname are being abused, mistreated, neglected and hurt. The Suriname Bible Society believes that providing genuine compassion to abused and hurting people is only possible in the spirit of God’s grace and love.

Suriname is a multi-ethnic society where more than seven main languages are spoken. Through different churches, ministries and faith based organisations, the Suriname Bible Society is reaching out to children and women in these different language communities. They are empowering them with the Word of God in their own language and providing specific training sessions and workshops such as trauma healing.
