Today we recognize World Down Syndrome Day! Spread awareness and spread support!21 Mar 2016
"Persons with disabilities, including those with Down syndrome, are more than persons in need of assistance; hey are agents of change who can drive progress across society – and their voices must be heard as we strive to reach the Sustainable Development Goals."
Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon
World Down Syndrome Day (WDSD), observed on 21 March every year, is a global awareness day which has been officially observed by the United Nations since 2012.
Down Syndrome International (DSi) encourages our friends all over the world to choose their own activities and events on WDSD to help raise awareness of what Down syndrome is, what it means to have Down syndrome, and how people with Down syndrome play a vital role in our lives and communities.
WHY MARCH 21?
The date for WDSD being the 21st day of the 3rd month, was selected to signify the uniqueness of the triplication (trisomy) of the 21st chromosome which causes Down syndrome.
Forbrain wants to spread awareness and support by sharing Danika's story.
