Joy over Braille translation of Bible in Welsh

The Wales Online website reports the completion of a recent project to create a Welsh Braille version of the Bible.

The project was co-ordinated by the Bible Society on behalf of an appeal committee, with the Royal National Institute of Blind People taking care of printing.

The Union of Welsh Independents also backed the campaign, saying blind people had the right to read the Bible in their own language. Alun Lenny, secretary of the appeal committee, said: “The response was amazing. Following substantial contributions by the Bible Society and religious denominations in Wales, money poured in from chapels and churches, schools and individuals.

“Some £15,000 was raised in less than four months, enabling the work to be given the go-ahead.” The project was completed in six months.
