For People with Down's Syndrome : World Down Syndrome Day 2019

Every year World Down Syndrome Day is celebrated on March 21st.

This year, the global theme is “Leave No-one Behind”

Every single person with Down’s syndrome should have the same opportunities as everyone else, in EVERY area of life.

People with Down’s syndrome from all over the world will be coming together at the United Nations in Geneva and New York to talk about why they shouldn’t be left behind.

All over the world people will be wearing #LotsOfSocks socks to raise awareness of World Down Syndrome Day.

Down Syndrome International have made this film to explain why World Down Syndrome Day is important:
