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

Rating: 5 stars  

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.

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

Rating: 5 stars  

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.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I really can't suggest any changes.
