Helping Hands Foundation Aids Romanian Boy

The Capitol (Annapolis, Maryland) had an article recently about Paul Lacatos, a 17-month old Romanian boy who suffers from complex syndactyly along with other issues in his legs.

The Helping Hands Foundation helped bring Paul to Annapolis from Romania. The foundation has covered travel and medical costs along with finding a host family for Paul and his mother.

The article itself is comprehensive and thoughtful. It touches on almost every aspect of the story from potential environmental causes of the condition to the emotional bond that Paul's host family developed for him. Most importantly, it demonstrates how the generosity of these individuals has resulted in a tangible benefit for Paul.
