World Down Syndrome Day Celebration 2022

Akkara Foundation celebrated the world down syndrome day. Almost 50 people participated in the event. The program was inaugurated by a parent of a child with down syndrome.The theme of world down syndrome day this year is “Inclusion Means”. It calls for making efforts to include people with down syndrome in all matters of life and not discriminate against them. Babies with down syndrome have an extra copy of a chromosome, which changes how the baby’s body and brain develop.
