SINCE 2012, UNESCO has declared 13 February as a day to celebrate the vital contribution radio makes in educating people, providing information and promoting freedom of expression across cultures. The day was chosen to coincide with the anniversary of United Nations Radio, the UN’s international broadcasting service, which was launched on 13 February 1946.

This year, join us in prayer for Feba's projects and partners as we mark World Radio Day by giving thanks and reflecting on how radio is still the mass medium of communication that is able to reach the widest audience throughout the world today.

At Feba UK, we know from firsthand experience how radio is specifically suited to reach people in remote communities with the gospel, especially those who are unable to read. Radio also has a very important and specific role to play in providing emergency broadcasts and programming to help save lives during humanitarian disasters.

How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can anyone preach unless they are sent? As it is written: ‘How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!’ (Romans 10:14–15).
