The Good Samaritan Program
In ever changing and challenging times of trauma and stress, the Bible Society of Zambia BSZ has a program called “Where is the Good Samaritan Today?”
The program was designed to address the growing HIV & Aids pandemic in so far as the Bible engagement ministry that the Bible Society of Zambia could provide. However, through such work and mission, the Bible Society has come to learn and understand that disability and inclusion is also a major mission concern. BSZ believes it is the mandate of every Christian to hear the call of the Good Samaritan in helping not only those infected and affected by the HIV & Aids pandemic but also reach out to the disabled through deliberate inclusion and advocacy in changing the way our society perceives issues of discrimination and exclusion. This program is based on the parable of the Good Samaritan from Luke chapter 10, that we are not to discriminate based on physical, racial or health status of another human being. Ours is a mission to all especially the weak in our society. The Bible Society aims to provide information, awareness, inclusion and scripture engagement to every Zambian in as far as it possibly can.
