Some interesting statistics about the population of India
The population of India is approximately 1,382 million.
- India population is equivalent to 17.84% of the total world population.
- India ranks number 2 in the list of countries by population.
- The population density in India is 446 per Km2 (1,156 people per sq mile).
- The total land area is 2,972,892 Km2 (1,147,839 sq. miles).
- 32 % of the population is urban.
- The median age in India is 26.9 years.
It’s certainly true that India has much to admire and in recent years has made some significant economic advances for its middle and upper classes, however, problems rooted in culture and calamity keep much of the population mired in abject poverty. In the remote locations where we work and where communities find it hard to survive, the help that IVCM offers can make a huge difference.
Many IVCM Pastors receive new ‘used’ bikes
Many IVCM Pastors have been very blessed to receive a new ‘used’ bike following a generous gift from a supporter who realised afresh the significance of our Pastors having more reliable transport to help them fulfil their ministries.
Many of them serve in very rural locations and care for more than one village, sometimes three or four, and as such need to reach these places efficiently and often quickly. Public transport is not a viable option in these circumstances because it can be sporadic, overcrowded and not available at the times required which can severely handicap a Pastor’s ministry.
Can you imagine how encouraging it is for so many of them to receive a new ‘used’ bike which for some replaces a seriously old, unreliable and costly machine.
