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

Rating: 5 stars  

I've been a supporter of Paramedics for Children for many years because of the work they do and because of the way they talk about that work and the people they work with. I made a small regular donation and as I followed the organization I became even more impressed. in 2011 I had the opportunity to bring a group of 12 college students to Copan to work directly with the organization. We had been volunteering with children's homes in several locations in Honduras for over a decade and finally decided to seek out a new community partner for our group. I suggested Paramedics for Children, and we were approved for travel thanks to the details and information provided by the Director Rodger Harrison. It was an amazing trip and we were so impressed we returned the next year.

They have a bed & breakfast in a walled compound--with a beautiful garden--so visitors and volunteers alike are safe and well cared for. Best of all, profits from the B&B support the organization. On both of our trips we found the team members to be organized, knowledgeable, and dedicated to helping volunteers help the local community, recognizing that the volunteers are changed even more than the people we work with and gently helping the students work through their experiences. They used our talents and desire to work hard, and between physical work and school visit we felt our time was very well spent. I would recommend this volunteer location and organization 100%.

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

Nothing--unless I could get them more money.
