Ruth Karina

September 2, 2015

Thank you for your support!ย Ruth’s surgery went very well! She is recovering and has begun her therapy to regain mobility of her elbow. You can see a video of Ruth back at home after her surgery here.

Ruth Karina is a six year old girl from Huasampata, Peru, located about one hour outside of Cusco, Peru. Currently, Ruth is in the second grade. She attends a local school, which she walks to every day with her siblings. Before her accident, Ruth was a very energetic and happy little girl who enjoyed playing with her siblings and friends outside. Since her accident, however, Ruth has become more reserved and withdrawn, and no longer likes to go out to play.
