Juan, 9Juan, 9Violence is ‘normal’ in this crime-ridden Dominican Republic suburb but a Bible program is bringing hope to its children.

Nine-year-old Juan was standing outside a church in his neighbourhood, talking to Carmen Checo of the Dominican Republic Bible Society, when a violent fight broke out nearby between a man and a woman. They threatened each other with knives and shouted about blowing each other up. Ms Checo was alarmed.

“Don’t worry – just ignore them. This is normal,” Juan told her, shrugging.

Albertine isn’t sure of her age but thinks she’s around 40. She owns two slightly worn and patched shirts, which she carefully hangs up in the small hut she shares with 11 other family members. All their clothes have been given as wages in exchange for long hours of labour in other people’s fields.

Albertine and her family now live in a village but she grew up as a nomad, moving from one settlement to another every few days. Like many pygmies, she never had the chance to attend school and has found herself having to work for the wealthier Bantu ethnic groups. Without a doubt, pygmies are marginalised and taken advantage of. It’s not uncommon for them to be used as slave labour.

But Dalta Balami, the translation committee secretary, didn’t make it. He was killed, along with dozens of others, as the militants rampaged through the largely Christian town. They burnt down churches, homes and businesses, and completely destroyed the Bura Bible translation office.*
