PRACTICAL COMPASSION FOR DESTITUTE CHILDREN IN THE LANDS OF THE BIBLE (PCDC)
Pcdc is a Tyneside-based charity dedicated to serving children in crisis in the Holy Land, regardless of race, creed or colour. We give financial, practical, and prayer-aid through our child-sponsorship scheme.
Whilst in the Holy Land in 1996, a number of Christian friends learned of the needs of some poor children they met. These were children who were orphaned, abandoned or sick, and in need of love and care.
Today, through the kindness and prayers of our supporters, seven trustees oversee the sponsoring of over 300 children from desperately impoverished backgrounds in the Holy Land.
R.I.P Fred Holmes, MB, BS, FRCS
It is with very great sadness that we have to announce that one of our long-serving trustees, Fred Holmes, passed away on 12th February 2014.
He has been a good friend, a quiet and
wise counsellor, and our medical advisor. He has stood by us in our crises, held us in his prayers and in his heart, and he in ours. We will also miss him so much.
Fred was one of God's dearest and best friends, a gentleman and a loving and generous benefactor. He was great to work with, to pray with, to listen to, and he had a good listening ear.
He was a devout and inspirational brother in Christ and we will never replace him. In the Middle East, where he worked as a doctor for many years, he loved and understood the people, and was gentle and kind to children.
We place him now in God's hands. Please keep his family in your prayers.
