“Helping others breathe a little bit”

Our History

Breathe a Little Bit is a non profit organization that got its inspiration from Joaquin, a brave little baby that was diagnosed with Vocal Cord Paralysis a few weeks after he was born.

During Joaquin’s time in the NICU, both of his parents felt that they weren’t the only ones going through those difficult times and they helped others in their similar situation. Helping others made them realize that giving and supporting one another was the only way to find the strength to keep on going.

Unfortunately, Joaquin left this world after only seven months, and that’s when his parents donated all of his medical supplies to Hospital San Juan de Dios in Caracas – Venezuela. While doing so they came up with the idea of honoring Joaquin and decided to create this foundation in order con commemorate him and help those who need it most. They knew that they could help others because they knew how tough and difficult a situation of this kind can be and that’s how they decided to help others breathe a little bit.
