PCRF is an organization that has made a world of difference for children who knew nothing but cruelty of the world around them. The people who make up PCRF are truly selfless humans who have ascended beyond any bias or discrimination to help people who have been ignored by all including by humanity itself.

The kids are nothing short of amazing! They are children, and not patients. When they cry, we comfort them; when they are in pain, we hold them and then when they smile, we smile too. We salute them for their bravery and take pride when they reach their milestones. You cannot help but fall in love.

Volunteering with PCRF has been an amazing and rewarding experience. It provides sick and injured children an opportunity at a better life and allows volunteers to take part in that process. Being able to see first hand the lives of these children improve makes volunteering with PCRF that much more meaningful.

Prior to my involvement with PCRF, I traveled to the Occupied Territories and Gaza in 2012. I witnessed the grossly inadequate medical facilities there. While in Gaza I saw that the work done by PCRF plays a substantial role in providing medical treatment of children that require surgery. Without PCRF many of the children would not have had the level of treatment that their condition requires.The medical missions (arranged by PCRF), by surgeons from around the world is vital and in many cases the surgery is life saving.

The PCRF brought 4 children from the Middle east to the Atlanta Area for treatment where they would not have gotten it in their native countries. I applaud this great effort by this organization and will continue to support them

As a volunteer in the PCRF, I am able to physical see and experience what this organization does for the patients and their families, no words can describe the rewards. What most do not anticipate when first exploring this great cause is the amount of courage and self discovery these patients experience. It has most definitely made me appreciative and humble to have been a part of these children's lives. I look forward to many more years of involvement with many more children hosted in Detroit, for they have changed my life and I can only hope to continue to try to change theirs for the better.

I have been involved with PCRF since 2007. I am currently an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon and have been a part of three separate missions with PCRF to the West Bank. I have never met a group of people who are more compassionate and devoted to helping others than the PCRF team I have had the privilege of working with. The surgeons, anesthesiologist, social workers, organizers and support staff are all extremely dedicated people and truly care about serving those in need. I have also never met a group of people more appreciative of the service we are able to provide them, their hospitality is unmatched. I plan on continuing to join the PCRF team on missions to the West Bank on an annual basis. Organizations like PCRF are why I decided to follow this career path.

I am an oral and maxillofacial surgeon, I volunteered for a mission to the Palestine city of Nablus on November 2013. I was totally impressed with the commitment from all the PCRF persons. We were treating children with dentofacial deformities.
I definitively will volunteer again, the patient's families were so grateful with all the team, and looking the simile of our patients after treatment is the best reward i have got so far product of my job.

I am involved as an Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeon. I was honored to be a part of a team whose goal is to look after children who don't have options in their homeland. Travelling to the West Bank allows these children to be treated near their home and eases the burden that their dentofacial deformities have placed on them and their parents. The people are genuine and grateful. I will continue to volunteer for this charity

I have been volunteering with the PCRF for 5 years as an Oral and a Maxillofacial Surgeon; I have traveled annually to the West Bank city of Nablus to provide care to children affected by unfortunate facial deformities. I chose to continue volunteering with the PCRF because of the organization’s strong commitment to the health and well-being of these unfortunate children as well as their commitment to meeting the long term health needs of the society.
The PCRF provides our surgical team with the resources necessary to provide state of the art health care. The most valuable resource that is provided to us as health care providers is a strong network of social workers who go above and beyond to assure that the children and the families are supported in the preoperative, perioperative, and postoperative periods. Material resources such as surgical equipment and anesthesia support provided are comparable to those used in first world health care centers.
The most admirable goal of PCRF is the creation of a self-sustaining health care team locally. There is a strong commitment that I feel when I travel to the West Bank to the education and training of local surgeons, nurses, and social workers. PCRF’s commitment to this goal will bring a transformation to the quality of health care, as well as to the access to health care in the society.
This organization is one worth supporting. It has noble goals and operates with great transparency. I feel very privileged to be volunteering with this incredible team.

I can't speak enough about PCRF. It's an amazing organization that serves children in need who want to enjoy being normal, many children have become where they are in their lives now because of the dedicated hard working members, and surgeons who put their lives in risk to support this wonderful cause. I've attended many events for PCRF and I've seen the positive results and impact they achieve every year. I'm proud of you all, and keep up the hard work.

My family has had a long history of supporting PCRF and for myself, the more I have learned about PCRF, the more impressed and committed I am to the mission and great work this humanitarian non-profit organization is doing. Real-life examples of changing lives. PCRF is one of my preferred and favorite charities. I look forward to sharing with my friends and colleagues and encourage them to support this great work. Kudos to all the chapters that are working together to help these youth with medical issues.

My first experience with PCRF was in January participating in their Climb of Hope campaign to take the first two teenage amputees to the summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro. The leadership on Steve Sosebee and the compassion and energy of the local teams left me humbled, impressed and more connected to a non-profit more than ever before. PCRF accomplishes having a sense of urgency paired with thoughtfulness and an attitude of sharing and creating history that you feel compelled to be apart of. I look forward to staying involved for many, many years to come.

There is no other organization I know that shows the results of the work you put in like this one. You not only get to see the children they bring from overseas who are in extreme need of medical attention but you are help these kids through every step. This organization changed so many lives, but my own has been forever influenced by these kids and these organisers. God bless the PCRF

PCRF is an amazing organization that you see results from first hand. In the Michigan area we have hosted many children and have been able to change the lives of multiple children. The group of volunteers are amazing and very supportive. Pcrf is one of the very few organizations that I give my time or money . I believe in this organization and would definitely recommend others to participate and or donate.

As a longtime supporter of PCRF, I am especially sensitive to its mission and focus on helping needy children find the medical care they so desperately need. For years now -- first in Southern California and now in Atlanta -- i have witnessed first-hand the transformative nature of PCRF's humanitarian work. Whether it be on the children's faces when they take the first tentative step with their new prosthetic leg or the joy on their parents' faces at seeing their children achieve goals long-sought but only now realized, PCRF's mission and goals are constantly being reaffirmed. PCRF positively impacts all who come into contact with the organization, from the children and the families it serves to the donors and supporters and wonderful medical personnel who so altruistically give of themselves and their skills.

PCRF is an important charity to me. Its very close to my heart. Every year I look forward to attending this special event. I am always amazed by the work that doctors from all over the country do to all the Children that need medical assistance. It is the only charity that I trust and know that my money is going for a great cause. I feel very passionate about this event and I have also got my family and kids involved in it and now we all look forward together to attending this yearly event. I will continue to spread the word about this amazing charity in hopes that we get more and more people involved.

I am very selective about the charities I support, and there is no doubt about PCRF. The more I learned about the organization, the more I felt confident that every penny I gave would go towards helping sick and injured children from the Middle East. I wholeheartedly support this organization.
