Global artist Karol G's Con Cora Foundation, in collaboration with Glasswing International, has unveiled a new mental health initiative named “Rincón de la Calma” (Corner of Calm). This project aims to establish secure and private areas within schools where students, teachers, and staff can seek solace during times of emotional and psychological distress. Planned for cities across Latin America, including Guatemala City, San Salvador, San Jose, and Santo Domingo, the initiative seeks to address and mitigate mental health challenges among the youth.
