These aren't bad kids...These are kids who need a home.
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) January 27, 2012
Jerry McTaggart believes he is more blessed than the children he helps. As a man who dropped out of school after the tenth grade, he has not only excelled as a businessman, but has also thrived as a philanthropist who seems to be working even more in his retirement years.
In an interview shown Monday on Good Samaritan Program TV, McTaggart gave viewers some insight into his involvement with Catherine's Children's Home and how essential and rewarding his work with the organization really is.
Catherine's Children's Home was founded in 2005 to promote the health and well-being of special needs children, orphans and the most impoverished sections of the population. Catherine's works to support the population of Mexico by reducing their vulnerability caused by inadequate healthcare services and the absence of suitable services and care - primarily through providing better access to healthcare services, promoting healthcare awareness and mobilizing communities to make sustainable changes.
McTaggart heads up the board of directors for Catherine's and after retiring as CEO of Christian Credit Counselors in 2006, was able to devote his full attention to expanding the organization and helping as many special-needs kids as possible.
In the interview, he spoke about a boy he and Catherine's was able to help who had spina bifida, a club foot and a brain tumor. After several procedures and hospitals, the boy beat the odds and would not be needing to learn to live as a quadriplegic.
"You'd never know he'd had all those problems today," McTaggart said.
The children McTaggart has dedicated his retirement years to helping are many times abandoned, special-needs kids who have had a tough go at life so far. McTaggart lived in a children's home for five years in the United States during his childhood, so he understands a portion of what these kids are going through.
"These aren't bad kids," McTaggart said. "These are kids who need a home."
McTaggart is currently establishing a new Catherine's home in Rosarito, Mexico. To view the full interview and episode with Jerry McTaggart, visit the Good Samaritan Program TV ministry page on Faith Channel.
