Torch sends accessible Christian resources to people with vision impairment in 100 countries. The aim is to ensure that people who are blind or partially sighted have equality of access to Christian resources, fellowship and pastoral care, and equal opportunity to serve and grow in their faith, including as leaders. Pray for Torch partner, Pastor Tibor Miklós in Hungary, who is bringing his own testimony and personal experience of sight loss to engage churches in reaching out to people with visual impairment.

A colourful past

Hungary, a landlocked nation in Central Europe, has a colourful past going back at least 1,100 years. Part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire from 1867, the Hungarians lost considerable territory and population as a result of the aftermath of World War I and fell under Soviet domination following World War II. Hungary was the first Communist Bloc country to institute a multi-party democracy in 1990. Many Hungarians have since identified themselves as Catholics - the predominant religion prior to World War II. Despite a significant number of evangelical Christians, there remains a deep spiritual need.
