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. […]

Their kind note was filled with encouragement and prayers for the safety and success of our team. But what encouraged me most was how their card ended: “It’s good to know we’re on the winning side.” […]

More Dignity for Women!

More Dignity for Women!

We have been blessed with an outpouring of support for PPF’s new Dignity Drive for women. This effort, to provide our sisters living in war zones with access to safe, reusable feminine hygiene solutions, has been well received. Each kit provides a woman with a soft, hygienic solution for up to three years! On behalf […]

Nuba Borehole Update – Phase IV

Well Repair Update

Well Repair Update

We are so blessed – way beyond what we even realize. For example, when we turn on the tap in our kitchens, safe water comes out. But for one of Sudan’s large Christian minorities living in the war-torn Nuba mountains, access to safe water can cost you your life. For nearly five years, the Islamist […]

Now You are Light in the Lord

Now You are Light in the Lord

By Ed Lyons “For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light.” Ephesians 5:8 My wife, Lisa, and I have good neighbors. They care about us. They pray for us. But not all of our neighbors live in close proximity to us. They span the country. […]
