As They Lay Sleeping

Um Serdiba is a Nuba community within shelling range of Sudan Armed Forces’ (SAF) artillery in the nearby garrison city of Kadugli. But Um Serdiba is not a military target.

2014: Year-End Review

2014: Year-End Review

We believe that the best way to start 2015 is by thanking God for all He accomplished through your generosity in 2014. Last year was a record-breaker on many levels. But surpassing goals on paper is one thing. The most important goal is engaging in active compassion that impacts lives. And, again, thanks to you, […]

I am very excited (about this wheelchair bicycle), and I have no words to express myself. Thank you, God.” “God really has answered my prayers. […]

Your giving continues to make a difference! In June, PPF conducted more emergency medical relief flights, including one to the hard-hit county of Panyagor in Jonglei State. There are more than 30,000 internally displaced persons (IDPs) in Panyagor. PPF flew in vital medicines to serve the 15 medical care facilities in the county. Thank you […]

The Ghost Town of Abyei

The Ghost Town of Abyei

On May 11, 2011, Abyei town, the historic capital of the nine Dinga Ngok chiefdoms in Southern Kordofan, was ransacked by Sudan Armed Forces aided by Janjaweed troops and Misseriya militias. The army brought in bulldozers and leveled the town. The local church was looted, desecrated and destroyed by soldiers. Every Bible, book, pew, pane […]

Trapped Between Two Wars

Trapped Between Two Wars

Since June, 2011, the Nuba people in Southern Kordofan, Sudan, have endured a relentless campaign of ethnic cleansing and persecution from the NCP regime in Khartoum. Dictator Omar al Bashir’s call to “take out the garbage” — referring to Nuba residents — sparked a series of massacres of thousands of ethnic Nuba in the state […]
