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

Rating: 5 stars  

It was by pure chance that I stumbled upon this charity. Looking up places to stay in Copan, back in 2010, I read the excellent reviews of the bed & bath establishment run by Rodger Harrison & his team. Their website mentioned that the proceeds from our stay would be used solely to fund the clinic & school projects run by Paramedics for Children. Needless to say, I was impressed & booked up to stay for 2 nights & we were there a few weeks later.
As luck would have it, we arrived in Copan from Antigua, Guatemala, late evening by shuttle bus & were dropped off at the center of town. We hailed a cab & the guy immediately knew the "clinic" and our hosts, even though he knew no more English & we knew no Spanish.. "Clinic La Esperanza" we asked..he immediately smiled & nodded & we were delivered safely there. It was obvious that the clinic & Rodger have earned the respect of the locals-that respect leading us to be delivered safely, in the middle of the night, in a strange land ;)
We were very impressed by what we saw during our stay. The clinic is primarily funded from the money from tourist bookings. School projects are run year round to take school supplies to the local kids. And the President, Rodger has a big heart..having just adopted a little Honduran girl with a disability, just a few months before our arrival. It was apparent that his heart & mind are dedicated to the people of Honduras. We had a great 2 day stay. .watching him interact with the locals, the clinic in action & sitting with him to discuss his dreams & plans for the future & for Paramedics for children.
We came away with a great respect for the organization. So much so, that we have become monthly contributors for the last couple of years. If you want to contribute to a charity, where the proceeds go 100% back to the people it was meant for, this is one charity for you;)
