India -- More than 12 people died from the violence that erupted in India’s Kashmir region last week. Words of Hope ministries will begin airing radio programming in the to bring comfort to the believers in the region, October 26.

"Beginning on the 26th of October, three nights a week, broadcasts (will be) going out through a partnership with Gospel for Asia, Words of Hope, and IBRA radio. These broadcasts in the Kasmiri language,” said WH correspondent Lee DeYoung.

According to DeYoung, the program, which Kashiri believers are producing, will provide a great answer to the violence. "It's an area where people have experienced so much violence, so much upheaval, so much unrest. So, a program that points to the Prince of Peace is very much welcomed,” said DeYoung.

In the past 15 years, more than 39,500 people died from the ongoing conflict in the region.
