Medical Distribution in the Nuba Mountains

Medical Distribution in the Nuba Mountains

According to the Islamist government in Khartoum, delivering a few tablets of medicine to people living in the war-torn Nuba mountains is a crime against the state. But so far in 2016 alone, PPF has delivered dozens of metric tons of medicine, including life-saving drugs like antimalarials – and more is on the way! We […]

The Wicked Flee When No One Pursues…

The Wicked Flee When No One Pursues…

“The wicked flee when no one pursues, but the righteous are as bold as a lion.” Proverbs 28:1 The above blurry photo taken on a mobile phone outside a Federal Court in Khartoum is testimony to the fearlessness of Sudanese Christians. These brave souls are offering up their worship of imprecatory hymns outside a “trial,” […]

400… and Counting!

400… and Counting!

PPF’s Emergency Borehole Repair team in the Nuba mountains has worked tirelessly through one of the most dangerous fighting seasons in more than five years of conflict to provide safe water to thousands of Nuba families. We recently received a report from the team leader that the 400th repaired well has been passed! Many broken […]

Relief for the Church in Karkarai

Relief for the Church in Karkarai

Last month, we told the story of the battle for Karkarai, a town in the Nuba mountains which is home to a large Christian community. Although the Sudan Armed Forces were driven from the town, thousands of homes were destroyed, and 4,950 families were displaced. We recently distributed 7,000 relief kits to bless the internal […]

Our New “Normal”

Our New “Normal”

On the evening of July 14th, the world learned of the terror attack in Nice, France, by an Islamic extremist. This tragic event killed 84 people and injured scores of others. In the wake of this terrible event, and so many others in recent memory, the conversation quickly turned to how people need to prepare […]

Dignity Kit Update

Dignity Kit Update

The PPF team recently distributed several hundred more personal hygiene “dignity kits” to a high school in the war-torn Nuba mountains of Sudan. The young women recipients were all smiles and giggles as they received a kit that will provide them with years of comfort, protection, and dignity. Thank you for your continued support of […]

A Bittersweet Victory

A Bittersweet Victory

In the distance, we could hear the pounding of artillery and the short, three-round bursts from AK-47s. We asked some passing soldiers what was going on, and they said a great battle was taking place in Karkarai, a large community in Sudan’s Nuba mountains. Through the help of a guide, we skirted around the fighting and […]

Mission Accomplished!

Mission Accomplished!

A couple of months ago, we issued an urgent appeal for funds to purchase an important device needed in the war-torn Nuba mountains of Sudan. Dr. Tom Catena at Mother of Mercy Hospital, the only referral hospital in the Nuba mountains, had worked for eight years without the benefit of a skin graft meshing machine. […]

“Why Are You Here?”

“Why Are You Here?”

In God’s mysterious providence, a recent PPF outreach to the Nuba mountains of Sudan coincided with the biggest ground offensive by the Islamist government in about five years. The Nuba was attacked at six different points. But rather than turn around, our team pressed on, often having to take rough trails to bypass the fighting. […]

Disturbing the Peace

Disturbing the Peace

[Editor’s Note: Please be in prayer for our Nuba brethren in Sudan. On Easter weekend, a massive offensive by the Sudan Armed Forces began. The Nuba was hit from six different points on the map. Our friends at Nuba Reports (nubareports.org) published a very good summary of the situation. We have reprinted the article below, […]
