Trauma is prevalent today and trauma healing has become a need and a necessity to attend to suffering communities.
The Bible Society is engaged in equipping the Church in dealing with traumatized communities through relative bible-based programs delivered by the HMS Center. HMS Center seeks to coordinate, advocate, raise awareness, conduct needs assessments and research, and organize events relative to various trauma healing programs for the region.
The Center also publishes relevant materials in Arabic and other indigenous
languages as bible-engagement tools in support of the various projects and
partners engaged in trauma healing.
If God loves us, why do we suffer?
How do traumatized people act?
How can we help them?
How can the wounds of our heart be healed?
How can we help someone who is grieving?
War, accidents, displacement, domestic violence, sexual abuse, losing loved ones, addiction and many more are considered traumatic events.
