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 !!!
Paramedics For Children talks the talk but most importantly "Walks the Walk" of their core value/mission >>> Paramedics for Children (PFC) is an international humanitarian organization serving the impoverished, sick and oppressed by providing programs that help save lives, educate, bring hope and maintain the dignity of children, families and communities in Central America and wherever else we may be called. PFC serves without regard to religious beliefs, gender, race or ethnic background.
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.
Paramedics for Children has done outstanding work for the children of Honduras, keep up the great work Rodger
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 Godsend for hurting children of Honduras. The staff and volunteers are true angels.
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.
This group is amazing in their work, care and concern for the children of Honduras, they provide so much more than medical care,
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
I am a Canadian Paramedic who has both followed and make donations to this organization for the past 7 years. The work they do is definitely "grassroots" but also has so much far reaching positive implications and influence that I put it on my bucket list of things I wanted to do (be a part of) before I die. March 2017 this is going to happen! Rodger and his team in Honduras and back in the USA have shown me that small things can have huge impacts. Rodger has touched base with me personally multiple times to say thank you for thinking of us with your donation. I know what I send is actually getting to the cause it was sent for. To me, that is what is important when I donate. Volunteering March I will get to see what my donations have done first hand. I cannot thank Paramedics for Children enough for allowing me to be part of the bigger picture!

What an awesome organization that has devoted their lives to helping the people of Central America! I have followed this organization for almost 20 years. They are miracle workers! As a former Paramedic and now a nurse, I commend them for their unselfish desire and willingness to make a difference in the lives of these children and families.
I'm a supporter of Paramedics for Children, Inc., and appreciate the regular updates sent by the founder. I routinely share PFC's information and mission, and encourage volunteers to travel to the Hacienda and volunteer with the organization. Someday, I hope to join them.
I follow this organization closely and I am continually blown away by the dedication they have to their mission. I have yet to visit the hacienda in Copán, and I will do so this year! Even though I haven't seen their work with my own eyes yet, I love how they are really on top of their communication which gives you a great look into what PFC is working on and what they're all about. And even though my donation this year was all that large, I received a personal letter from the founder!
Keep up the amazing work!
I facilitate my church's prayer community for select missions in Central America so that we have many people praying daily for them. Paramedics for Children is a wonderful mission team that serves the poor and hurting people in the area, and is one of the missions we cover with our prayers. They operate in and around in Copan Ruinas, Honduras with a clinic and emergency vehicles. They do amazing work considering their limited resources. The only thing standing between my 4-star rating and a 5-star rating is significantly increased donations of cash, fever/dehydration medicines, and a ten liter/minute oxygen concentrator.
Paramedics for Children is a small non-profit organization providing education services and healthcare to the poor in the high mountains of Honduras.
PFC continues to do a lot with a little.
The John and Susan Dewan Foundation has supported PFC's school supply program since 2002. This program provides basic school supplies (and vitamins) four times per year to 25 remote mountain villages overlooking the Copan Valley. For the cost of about $9.00 per child per year, PFC makes the difference in a child being able to attend school. This program has been operating continuously since 1997. Local teachers relate that over time, school attendance has been increasing and dropouts are declining in part due to PFC assistance.
The Clinica Esperanza is a low-cost health service providing increased access to care for the poor. It has operated since 2005. The clinic treats up to 750 patients monthly. Participating local doctors agree to charge patients a reduced rate for their normal consultation fee, and in return, get full use of the clinic, all equipment and donated medications free of charge.
The ambulance donation and volunteer training program relies on generous donations from paramedic units across the USA. There are now 22 ambulances in services with 300 paramedic volunteers trained by PFC in eight PFC member chapters both in Honduras and Guatemala.
In the last few years, PFC has taken on partial financial support of the 35 children at the La Casita Orphanage in Copan Ruinas.
Paramedics for Children has managed several significant accomplishments on a shoestring budget. They save lives, bring hope, open opportunity and restore dignity to thousands of the very poor in the Copan region of Honduras and Guatemala.
I have been involved with Paramedics for Children for a number of years.
The organization is well run and provides critical services to the most deserving of our population, the children.
Many children and families as well, have benefited from the work of the PFC volunteers and from the many donations made by individuals such as myself.
I could not find a more deserving charity to receive my donation dollars which is why I am a Super Supporter of their efforts.
To know someone that has given their life for a cause and not just lip service makes me proud to donate and support Paramedics for children. I know where my money goes and it is not to line the pockets of some wealthy company or person. I know how crucial our donations are and I know every dollar is spent to the betterment of the children and families that they serve.. from medical attention to school supplies they have given and continue to give and provide.. I donate every year through my employer and take time to share with my friends and coworkers so they have the chance to donate to something that really gives more than they receive..
I have given to Paramedics for Children and I've seen the great work that they do. I know that when I give to them it goes straight to the children.
These folks are fantastic. I had the opportunity to visit Copan and see some of the people who benefit directly from their great work. They have very little overhead, giving me the confidence that what I'm able to send them will directly benefit those most in need.
PFC is an innovative, creative team that integrates volunteers' expertise to maximize the efficacy of the organization.
I am a proud supporter.
