World Down syndrome day

World Down Syndrome Day

21 March is World Down Syndrome Day, a global awareness day officially observed by the United Nations.  

All of us in Down Syndrome Ireland are very excited about celebrating World Down Syndrome Day and we also encourage our friends all over the country to choose your own themes, activities and events 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.
