Tous Ensemble Foundation is very excited to be able to share with you good news! We have been working in our new clinic for 7 months and we have been able to operate normally, serving more than 400 people per month. We want to thank you for your unconditional support during all this time, which has allowed us to continue operating and working for our community.
From the months of April to June 2023, 3323 patient consultations have been performed, of which 688 were for children and 228 were new patients. In addition to the therapy sessions, in the month of April a training was held for stroke patients, in May a training for parents of children with disabilities and in the month of June one for patients with osteoarthritis. In addition, FONTEN continues to support the local amputee soccer team, which is actively carrying out activities to improve the integration of people with disabilities.
The prosthesis and orthosis program has been very active, 4 prostheses have been manufactured, 11 have been repaired and 116 orthoses have been made, most of them for children. In addition to this, a total of 52 services were provided for children with clubfoot.
In the month of June, FONTEN staff together with FSRL students, conducted a mobile clinic, in which patients were educated, treated and technical aids were distributed, a total of 79 people participated in the Bearmound community.
Once again we want to thank you for your generosity and for allowing us to carry out all these activities, without you this work would be impossible!
