I've been following PCR and their amazing work for a while now. I am overwhelmed with the unselfish work they do providing excellent medical care and humanitarian aid for sick and injured children, regardless of nationality or religion. I share their stories with family and friends every chance I get. PCR is a true example of the humanity each of us should have.

My first experience with PCRF was this April attending their fundraising dinner event in Chicago. I was impressed by the level of organization and professionalism. I believe that this organization is doing great work helping Children in Gaza. I admire the amount of work and dedication that the members of this organization are offering for its cause.

PCRF is one of the most genuine organizations I've came to learn of. They represent and do all I wish to do and can not, which is to give the help and the healthcare services to every child that needs it. When I give to this organization I don't just feel that I helped a child, I feel that I am part of an organization that will make a difference generations to come. Every child helped will pay it forward somehow and will make our world that much better. The last event I attended was very informative and heart warming.

There are very few organizations out there that truly adhere to the humanistic elements and the values of life. PCRF is among those organizations and writing a review is just not enough to explain the things they do. The efforts of its members are eye-opening, life-changing, and make me proud of supporting such a wonderful group in our community.

I am truly amazed by PCRF. This is an organization with an exceptional mission and an impressive record of achievements. PCRF continues to touch the lives of so many children with so little or no hope. As a board member of a sister org for supporting children with cancer, I find myself looking up to PCRF for inspiration. This is an org that's driven by a group of dedicated founders and volunteers. I am always excited to support PCRF and its admirable cause.

My friend not only sponsored a child but had her live with her while she received the surgery she needed. It was a life changing experience not only for her and the child but for her daughters, her friends, and the girl's family as well.

PCRF is one of the most impressive organizations I have seen in many years. Over the past 5 years, I have had the pleasure of getting to know their work in detail and I have attended many of their events. Their work is truly amazing and it shows in the enthusiasm of the volunteers, the doctors, the donors, and certainly their patients. I have volunteered with many non-profits that serve the community, but have never witnessed the level of commitment as I have seen from the PCRF team. The life-changing impact PCRF has on the lives of so many children is truly the most inspiring and heartwarming work I have ever seen.

PCRF is a wonderful organization. They have been working hard for several years to ensure that they can provide medical care to as many children as they can. Their efforts have been recognized through their work when sending doctors abroad, or when sponsoring a patient for medical care in the US and much more.

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!!
