About DownUp! Foundation

The Chilean foundation, DownUP!, is a supportive community of parents and families raising children with Down Syndrome.

Help, support, and guidance are provided by volunteers who want to share their experience with other families.

DownUP! also developed different programs for parents to have a more positive experience with their newborns. They also raise awareness about parents' experiences of welcoming and raising children with Down Syndrome, by holding information sessions for medical staff.

This non-profit organization was founded in 2016 by four families, united in common cause. Since then, the foundation has gathered more than 750 families throughout Chile.
