BSN holds coin-harvesting event at Dagbreek School for learners

WINDHOEK: The Bible Society of Namibia (BSN) yesterday held a coin-harvesting event at the Dagbreek School for learners with learning impairment in the capital.

Close to 60 children, some in wheelchairs, from that school braved the cold winter morning to place coins on a specially-designed mat.

The children enjoyed the activity which is aimed at raising funds for the BSN to print Bibles.

Programme Officer of the Bible Society, Leilani Riddles told Nampa during the event the BSN embarked upon various projects to raise funds in efforts to ensure the Bible is translated into all Namibian languages.

She said the Bible Society feels it is of key importance for every person to read the Bible in his or her own language, adding that man cannot live from bread alone, but also from the word of God.

A clearly excited Riddles, who enjoyed every moment of the coin-harvesting process, told this reporter it is always a joy for her to work with children.

She said children have this genuine outpouring of emotions and feelings when they truly enjoy something.
