Volunteer with Paramedics For Children International

Paramedics For Children International

Paramedics for Children International (PFCI) provides medical care, education programs, and disaster relief to children, families, and communities in Central America and beyond. We serve without regard to religious beliefs, gender, race, or ethnic background.

We started out in 1996 by delivering school supplies to hundreds of Mayan Chortí Indian children in the mountain villages of Copán, Honduras. From there, we expanded to disaster response and training (by 2004 we had the largest all-volunteer ambulance services in all of Central America!), and established Clinica la Esperanza, which has treated more than 50,000 patients to date.

What started as a small group of paramedics, nurses, doctors, and other healthcare professionals has evolved into so much more. We now host volunteers from all walks of life, and we have a lot of fun while making a difference in our communities. Come join us!
