Description

Education and Medical

Although Honduras offers public education for it's people, the state only furnishes the building, and teachers. Families must pay for the children's books, and supplies. In a country where the average daily wage is only $3.50 per day, you can understand why so few children get to attend school. Many families can only send one of their children at a time, and even that is at a great sacrifice. PFC has been there for these children since 1997. We have delivered over 143,000 note books and pencils to the poorest children in the Copan Valley.

We discovered that the best approach was to select as many of the small mountain schools as we could, and implement an aid program that was grounded in constant support with much needed school supplies.

Until Paramedics For Children made it's debut in Honduras emergency medical care as we know did not exist. Many of the needy children, and adults who suffered from trauma simply died from lack of professional emergency medical aid.

In October of 1999 we were able to bring into Copan Ruinas the first of two "state of the art" ambulances that had been donated to us by other American based rescue squads. This allowed us to establish the first all volunteer rescue squad in the history of Honduras. Since then we have brought over 40 ambulances to Honduras and Guatemala and trained over 300 Hondurans in basic life support. On average PFC ambulances in Honduras and Guatemala run about 300 emergency calls per month.

Honduras has many problems. A big one for us is finding the right people to help us get the job done. All of the supplies that we bring into the country are always placed directly into the hands of the people. Children in the high mountains are the ones who suffer the most. The remoteness of their homes often involves the use of horses to reach them. The work is hard . Often we may have to travel up to 25 miles in one day to reach some of the more remote areas outside of the main town of Copan Ruinas.

Paramedics for Children is a small yet efficient organization that has withstood the test of time. We have been here for the children since 1997 and will continue to serve the needs of these children well into the future.

Up in the high mountains of Honduras, you will find that one person can make a difference. Come visit us. Who knows, you may even find yourself. One thing is for sure. It will change your life.

If you possess the skills we need to support these children, we would love to have you on our team.
