Water in a War Zone

PPF’s Well Repair Project in the Nuba Mountains In June, 2011, the jihadist government in Sudan launched a war of genocide in the Nuba mountains of Sudan, which is home to that country’s largest Christian community.

Partners in “Crime”

By Brad Phillips Southern Kordofan State, a.k.a. “the Nuba mountains,” has been described in the historic 2005 Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA) as one of “three contested areas” in Sudan – the others being Abyei and Blue Nile State.

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.

Be a Hero

The RSF are mercenaries plucked from all over Sudan and even other North African states. They are a major source of terror for the civilian population, because they are given […]

Another Summer of Service

Another Summer of Service

In the month of June alone, we conducted seven emergency relief flights, transporting tons of medicine, Bibles, NFIs (non-food items like blankets and mosquito nets). […]

200!

200!

A couple of months ago, we reported that the PPF safe water team had repaired 175 broken wells in the war-torn Nuba Mountains of Sudan. Today, we can rejoice again in hearing the news that the 200 mark has been reached!  About 18 months ago, we began to repair broken well pumps, setting an initial goal […]

175! This is amazing…

175! This is amazing…

175! Contaminated water is responsible for more than 80 percent of disease in Africa. That is a big motivation behind PPF’s Safe Water Program. Water is life. In 2013, we began an ambitious campaign to provide access to safe water for the people of the Nuba Mountains in northern Sudan. The area is home to Sudan’s largest […]

2013: A Year of Surpassing Expectations

As 2013 came to a close, it ended one of the most active and successful years of ministry to date. We are grateful for all that God has allowed us to do — surpassing all of our expectations. Throughout the year, we’ve updated you on various projects — including our outreaches to the embattled people […]
