Dr. Ahmed Zachariah is a special individual.
He could have chosen to practice medicine in the comfort of Sudan's capital city - or even abroad. Instead, his Christian faith led him to choose the path of hardship and service to his people by remaining behind in the war-torn Nuba mountains.
Dr. Ahmed had no medicine. He had no equipment. He had no hospital. Now, he has all three - thanks to the generosity of PPF's ministry partners and his own resourcefulness.
PPF's medical program has equipped Dr. Ahmed with vehicles, medicine, equipment, and building supplies so that he can build a proper hospital for a region with precious few medical resources spread over a vast landscape.
The hospital construction is progressing well, and patients are already receiving a surprising level of care for such a remote territory. Dr. Ahmed told us he's even receiving patients from South Sudan, who walk across the border because Ahmed's incomplete hospital is the best medical facility in the area.
We praise God for His grace and mercy in giving us the compassionate heart of Dr. Ahmed. And we praise God for your "active compassion" for our brothers and sisters in Sudan!
