Paramedics for Children is a fantastic organization which is addressing a vital need for the children of Honduras. Through the clinic's work,as well as the school projects, they are insuring that the children have a healthy and productive future both for themselves and the general population of this extremely poor area. What this organization accomplishes with limited funds, is amazing beyond description. I will continue to be a regular donor, as well as a contributor to their special needs projects, and will continue to do so with great pride, and without hesitation. Paramedics for Children gets the job done !!!

My wife and I cheerfully donate to Paramedics For Children. We love knowing the work they do in the name of Christ is done "for the least of these." Jesus loves the little children and so does PFC!
Rodger Harrison is a long-time friend. We have the utmost confidence in his leadership of this hands-on ministry he founded two decades ago.

Paramedics for Children is an organization where any donations are instantly turned into action and aid for very needy people. Dedicated volunteers and some generous professionals have built a place of refuge and care where that care is needed most. Having visited and seen for myself how this groups operates, I'm proud to be a part of their support system.

I have known Rodger Harrison and his work with Paramedics For Children Inc. since he first began the organization. He and his group have done great work for the children and the community. I have plans to travel to Honduras next year as a volunteer and help.

As a parent I cannot imagine the desperation Rodger goes through daily to help provide services for the people in his area. I met Rodger through a friend, Rodney Ward, who I used to work with. The successes Rodger and his selfless group is second to none. Paramedics for Children is a true life changing charity.

I first became aware of this amazing project while I was a paramedic, in Vancouver, BC. Rodney Ward, who I worked with was always talking about driving from Vancouver to San pedro sula, Honduras!!! In his Volkswagen golf I must add. As a father of 3 children I started to awaken to how lucky we truly are in Canada, it was my turn to start giving back.

I asked "what can I do?" and as being quite handy, Rod had said the children had "worn the chain out on the swing sets". I didn't think this was possible, but Rodger sent pics of the chain worn through...
I constructed 12 swing sets for Rod to take down on his next trip.

The satisfaction I got knowing these very disadvantaged children could at least play again warmed my heart. I had the pleasure of meeting Rodger and Pam on one of our Houseboat trips, here in Canada and I was convinced this is such a worthwhile charity, making a daily difference in so many lives.

Once I finish my RN degree I will be making a trip down there to see what kind of a difference I can make.

I implore everyone to take $5 out of your wallet and donate to this cause. We can stop poverty $5 at a time.

Paramedics For Children is a light that shines in someone's darkness, a refuge for the scared and hurting children of Honduras. My pastor says that doing for others knowing they can't do for you in return is love in it's truest form. The staff and volunteers there all possess this true form of love.
I'm proud of the growth of the clinic, the caring hearts of all who work there, and the progress that has been made over the years.

Consistently focused on the practical, vital, life saving needs of the poor in their piece of Honduras. Whether training locals to staff provided and equipped ambulances, where previously there were none, or establishing and staffing a wonderful medical clinic, Roger Harrison and his phenomenal crew have delivered. Always done on a tight and humble budget, lives are being enhanced and quite literally saved. JAF, MD
