But on some morning, Little Mia doesn’t feel good. Some mornings Little Mia has to go to the doctor instead.”

Hi! We are Alex and JuanJo and we are part of The Pongo Bongo, a social communication agency specialised in helping small charities.
Our aim is to help children who suffer from rare conditions cope with their illness. Through illustrated tales, we want to help kids and adults, whether they are affected or not, to understand this and other rare diseases and ultimately to improve their quality of life by making more people aware of their condition.
Our goal is:
- to publish an illustrated picture book to explain to little kids, like Little Mia, why they are so special.
- to create a resource for parents to explain to their children why their, or other, children have this condition and what rare diseases are.
