64-Year Old Grandfather João Stanganelli, With Vitiligo, Crochets Dolls To Make Children With This Condition Feel Better

A 64-year-old Brazilian grandfather João Stanganelli Junior lives with vitiligo, with it becoming gradually more noticeable since it first appeared in his 30s.

Having recently become semi-retired from the gastronomy industry due to unrelated health issues, João decided to take up a hobby to keep himself active and engaged. He and his wife took up crocheting, and while it was difficult at first, he soon got the hang of it.

João’s first project was a doll for his granddaughter, something for her to always remember him by. So he created a doll with vitiligo patches, and an idea was born.

João started making more of these inclusive dolls, including a doll in a wheelchair amongst others. They were all designed to help children feel ‘normal’ and valued, no matter what kind of condition they might be living with.
