I learned about Paramedics for Children through my coworker - and we have since stayed there at least twice while working in and around Copan. We've had the pleasure to meet and talk with Rodger and Suyapa and learn a bit about the mission of the organization and the effort that Rodger puts forth to ensure the organization is serving its beneficiaries. Every day we headed out to work in the morning we would pass the clinic with a line out the door, and many people waiting in the sunny yard outside. Rodger told us about driving up into the hills to visit the towns and deliver goods to the children and families that live up away from the town and clinic. The organization works hard to ensure that all the resources people are donating are being used to directly serve the clinic and the efforts of the organizations, and I both admire and trust Paramedics for Children and all the work they do!
I grow up in Honduras and seen the poverty and suffering from our children. This organization is providing an incredible service for this children and deserves all our support. Please consider this organization for your support
