Meet Two of the People Your Compassion Has Blessed

Meet Two of the People Your Compassion Has Blessed

The old man in the picture to the right is from an area of the Nuba mountains which was the scene of intense fighting this year. More than once, the village where he lived was evacuated, as residents fled the Islamist ground forces of indicted war criminal, Omar al Bashir. As you can see from […]

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 […]

She spent her life crawling in the dirt, then…

You might have seen this picture before: a PPF relief truck slogging through the mud headed north to the Nuba mountains. On the back of the truck are strapped two hand-powered tricycles for paralyzed victims of polio. Recently, we were able to meet one of the recipients of a PPF tricycle. We were sitting in […]

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 […]

A Good Kind of Tired…

A Good Kind of Tired…

By Matt Chancey I’ve recently started CrossFit Training. And let me tell you, there are few better ways to feel your age! Ouch! The first few days, I was waddling like a duck everywhere. I was so sore! But I keep going back. Why? Because at the end of each session, I feel great. I […]

A “Ministry of Mud”

A “Ministry of Mud”

A pastor once described his job as putting on gum boots and wading through the muck of people’s lives. He didn’t mean it in a condescending way, just as an honest appraisal of the human condition. All of us come with baggage. Some of it’s personal. And some of it’s dumped on us by other […]
