  Ana Rut, seated on the left in the picture above, was accepted into Helping Hands for Honduras, and came to Philadelphia in October, 2003, for heart surgery. Ana was 12 years old and had a difficult time breathing.  Ana was first discovered by the January 2003 medical team from Gehlen Catholic Mission Honduras who referred her immediately to Ronaldo Roll, director of Helping Hands for Honduras.  The picture below shows a completely healthy Ana Rut in January, 2005.  Much thanks to everyone involved, including American Airlines for their contribution.
