Simone Rosito – Instituto Pequenos Grandes Guerreiros

Simone is the president and founder of Sao Paulo-based Instituto PGG. She is the auntie of premature twins born at 32 weeks.

In Brazil, the main challenge is the deficit in NICU beds. You are lucky if you actually get a place in the NICU. Generally, there is very little support for families during a long stay in the NICU. 

So we offer free, specialized, nation-wide psychological assistance to families of babies affected by Necrotizing Enterocolitis (NEC) so that they are better equipped to deal with the challenges of having a sick baby.
