Discover the inspiring story of FONTEN Co-founder Consuelo Alzamora and her unwavering team, who have dedicated their lives to bringing hope and healing to the community of Les Cayes, Haiti. In the aftermath of the 7.2 magnitude earthquake that rocked the community of Les Cayes, Haiti in August 2021, the situation was bleak, but FONTEN refused to give up.

Despite facing unimaginable devastation and destruction, Consuelo and her team continued to provide critical rehabilitation services to individuals with disabilities in the area. Miyamoto Relief recognized the critical work of FONTEN and partnered with them to restore the center.

The successful reconstruction of the FONTEN stands as a testament to the resilience and dedication of those involved in rebuilding after natural disasters. Now, FONTEN is not just a space for rehabilitation treatments but a safe space for the community.
