Ruth Paz's History
Ruth Paz was a US native who was born in Detroit, Michigan. She dedicated her life to helping those in need and was known as the
guardian angel of underprivileged Honduran children.
For thirty years, Ruth took children to the US for medical treatment that they otherwise would have had no chance of receiving. In 1992 the Honduran
government, recognizing her many years of labor and dedication, passed a resolution creating the Ruth Paz Foundation.
Today her work is carried on by her family and by a network of volunteers. The Ruth Paz Foundation has grown into a multi-faceted
nonprofit organization dedicated to making a difference in health care for underprivileged children that come to us from all parts of the country.
