We are working with Asociacion Guatemalteca para el Sindrome de Down to provide training and emotional support to parents of babies and young children with Down syndrome.

With our support, Asociacion Guatemalteca has now run 7 expert-led sessions for over 65 parents of children with Down syndrome in Guatemala.

Each session features a presentation by an expert in their field and provides an open space for parents to ask questions, share experiences and receive support. Sessions have covered a range of important topics including diagnosis, early development, nutrition, heart disease and eye care.

Feedback from parents about the sessions has been very positive and we expect this project to have a big positive impact on the lives of children with Down syndrome in Guatemala.
