Paramount partners with OIC to help children

Nov 11, 2015

In March 2015, Paramount Transportation Systems in North Carolina teamed up with the Orthopaedic Institute for Children (OIC), a world leader in orthopaedic care, education and research.  Through the OIC’s Corporate Giving Program, paramount will donate $5 for every move it completes anywhere in the world.  The program is expected to raise more than $100,000 for OIC’s new pediatric orthopaedic surgery centre, scheduled to open in Los Angeles next year.

Dr Anthony A Scaduto, President and CEO of OIC commented: “Because of corporate partners like you we are able to provide the highest level of orthopaedic care to kids who need it.”

To put this into perspective, Rob Cormier from Paramount sent
The Mover a story about a 15-year-old girl called Bibiana from Tanzania. Bibiana and her sister suffer from albinism.  In her society the blood and bones of albinos are highly sought after by witch doctors.  When she was ten, and under the care of her uncle, intruders broke into her home and amputated her leg and two fingers.  Her uncle was complicit in the attack.  OIC has now teamed up with African Millennium Foundation, Hanger Prosthetics and Ronald McDonald House to look after her.

Whatever their religious beliefs or local traditions, however impoverished her family, nothing can justify this.  Are there no limits to human wickedness?
