Fondation Tous Ensemble (FONTEN) was founded in 2016 to provide long-term, professional rehabilitation services to the people of southern Haiti. Our aim is to live in a society where people with disabilities achieve full integration in community and can attain high levels of health and wellness.
We provide rehabilitation services to people with orthopaedic and neurological problems. Children and adults from all over the southern regions of Haiti come to our clinic in Les Cayes for physiotherapy, occupational therapy, as well as prosthetics and orthotics services. Our mobile clinics provide remote communities with professional care. Through outreach, advocacy and education we promote equality and integration for persons with disabilities in our communities.
FONTEN has been selected by GlobalGiving, an international NGO which vets grassroots organizations, connecting them to corporate and private sponsors all over the world. We have been authenticated by GlobalGiving and met the criteria for permanent partnership with GlobalGiving and opportunities for corporate funding, networking and increasing our capacity to provide rehabilitation to the people of southern Haiti, including about 500 children a year. In a GlobalGiving contest for new partners FONTEN finished 4th out of 40. Check out our project: Provide Rehabilitation to 500 Children in Haiti to read more about how we provide occupational- and or physiotherapy, assistive devices including orthotics and prosthetics, clubfoot corrections, orphanage support, education for parents and caregivers of children with disabilities and more!
A huge thank you to the Friends of FONTEN who have made many small donations to bring us closer to within $1,400 of our goal of $20,000 – a sum which will fund all our children’s programs and serve 500 young patients for a year.
