I just had to share this brand new video from your friends of Alpe Foundation.
When I knew about Alpe, I contacted them right away and the most joyful person answered back: Carmen Alonso. A few months later, in June 2013, we did a 1700 km car journey with Afonso and Clara to meet them.

Carmen and all Alpe team received us with open arms, gave us support, important contacts, knowledge based on experience and above all, hearts full of good feelings and true friendship. We felt at that time so must cherished by people that we didn´t know until that point. The feeling of belonging was overwhelming!!!

Alpe have done an impressive and relevant work with families who achondroplasia visited.

Thank you!
