My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Paramedics For Children Inc, Rock Hill, SC, USA
My husband, daughter, and I volunteered with PFC last year. This was our first time both volunteering for a nonprofit and visiting a third world country. We had the heart to volunteer, but not much education or experience. PFC exceeded all hopes and gifted us with a more compassionate and healthier world-view.
Their extraordinary hospitality combined with the genuine humanitarian effort they do make them the true example of a nonprofit. If they expected profit for themselves the organization would never have been founded in the first place. Their constant focus is on the well-being of the people they serve. They give and give and teach that level of glad servitude. I have never known an organization to be so purely-motivated. Doesn't everything these days have an agenda? Not for PFC. They seek to love, to care, to serve. They seek to embody kindness and educate and help the people they encounter learn to sustain themselves. They are not a hand-out, but they offer a hand-up in this frightening world of poverty and disease. And yet, during our time with PFC and the people who guided us around, we saw hope and life in the middle of the worst circumstances. That should be the litmus test that ought to be used to pick the best nonprofit. Hope and life in what would have been despair and death.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Give them more exposure so more people would be more aware of them.
