Senator Frist's first trip in Medical Missions was with Dr. Dick Furman and World Medical Missions, an affililate of Samaritan's Purse.
Samaritan's Purse has been doing good work in Sudan for some time. I thought it appropriate to highlight their work, in support of their continued efforts, here as we focus on Sudan this month.
Sudan: Samaritan's Purse
During decades of vicious civil war, more than 2 million people lost their lives and thousands of communities were destroyed. Samaritan's Purse has been helping the people of Sudan since 1997, by providing food, shelter, clean water, agriculture assistance, education, medical aid, and vocational training programs. In Darfur, we have fed 220,000 people who were forced from their homes by government-backed militias. In 2005, we launched a major church reconstruction project for Christians in South Sudan who suffered violent persecution.
