We meet amazing people all of the time. There’s something about being a part of POP that enables us to meet generous supporters and amazingly resilient families living in poverty.
Families that benefit from what POP has been able to provide to impoverished communities have shared their story with others in their community and then they come to us. While we have helped over 100 children in partnership with the local hospital, there are so many more children in need. Sometimes we get requests to help procure and donate wheelchairs, sometimes to evaluate children suffering from orthopedic conditions, sometimes to help a sibling gain access to an educational program so that she or he may help provide for their family.
Each story makes us realize how fortunate we all are, and how much access we all have here in the U.S. to high quality medical care. As a result, we’ve begun a sponsorship program.
