I have read and heard lots about this organization, and nothing but good came out of it. Though recently, I saw first hand what they are all about. I applied and was accepted to be a host mother for one of the many children they sent abroad for medical treatment. Before the young 8 year old girl arrived here in the United States, and into my home; I was touched and speechless, to the dedication and sincerity the local chapter Volunteers had. They go above and beyond what a volunteer is, and I can only thank them for opening up my eyes even more. I am whole heartily dedicated to this organization in everything that they do.

My four month experience with hosting this young girl impacted so many people, as was I, but I was impacted most by how smooth, how considerate, how loving, how dedicated each and everyone of these Volunteers were in handling this case, and to think they not only had this one case at the time, they had about a dozen others, lets not also forget about their daily home and work life. From the 'head honcho' CEO Steve Sosebee to the PR lady whom I adore following me around with her camera, and the ones who I never met only through email, the are all number 1 in my book. I have dealt with over a dozen organizations, and nothing hit home or felt right like this one!! God Bless Them for all what they do. Keep Up the Amazing Work!!

I visited the PCRF in Palestine recently for three weeks and I was given a tour by President and CEO Steve Sosebee. He showed me the ICU unit in Makassad Hospital where PCRF brings doctors from around the globe to perform open-heart surgeries on children, a one of a kind program in Palestine. I was also shown where PCRF was to build the first-ever cancer department in Beit Jala, which is in Bethlehem. I visited the homes of families who PCRF had already helped and those that were eagerly waiting for their children to be treated. We gave toys away to sick children in Makassad Hospital, Sosebee's daughters gave them to the sick children. And, I visited the staff in West Bank, and met the Program Manager from Gaza, Suheil.

As my trip neared it's end, I was amazed at the organization. I met teams of medical professionals that arrived to perform cardiac surgery, an Italian and a Belgian team. I heard their stories and how their inspiration came to them. I heard how Steve, single handedly, approached doctors one by one to recruit them to this worthwhile organization. I was touched and will never stop helping the PCRF in any way possible.
