Saikhantsetseg, 19, pictured on the left, lost her sight as a child. “Before, I would listen to the audio Bible and asked other people to read the Bible to me. But it's amazing to be able to read it in Braille. I find it easier to understand, and I feel closer to the things written in the Bible. Listening to the audio Bible is good, but when I read the Braille Bible it is more interesting and alive.”
Saikhantsetseg is just one of the 12,000 visually impaired people in Mongolia. At present, some books have been translated but there isn't a whole Bible text in Braille. The Mongolian Union Bible Society believes this must change and is working to translate the first full Braille Bible.
