Review for Paramedics For Children Inc, Rock Hill, SC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I met Rodger about 17 years ago when he first visit Honduras, He saw a lot of the needs in Copan Ruins, and talking to a group of friends especially to Hector Cardona (Muco) who became Rodger best friend, they both live to help and view copan with very different eyes,
I remember the long nights conversations talking about the different needs and what could be done.

Before I knew Rodger, came back with the first ambulance and they stared Paramedic For Children, that was the first real ambulance that the people of town ever seem fully equip, not the back of the land cruiser with someone with a few hours training.

Muco and Rodger stared to talk to the locals to become part of the team, Hondurans are very hard working people and with the right lead we can go very far, and thats one of the things that he brought to town. in a few months later there blue uniforms were ready to help their people making runs at all times, this made a huge difference on their health due that after dark most of the doctors could not be contacted.

Then Rodger and Muco were always thinking in others, and they both love horses so they went to the mountains to ride and saw more need up on the top the mountains, in the schools, school supplies, clean water, stoves etc. so that´s how the school and vitamins program got stared. I remember once Rodger was telling me about a teacher that wanted out the vitamin program. I thought is this teacher crazy, but them he mention that the teacher was having trouble with the kids because they had a lot more energy that he was used to.

Up to today PFC steel in helping Honduras and expanded to Guatemala too.
