World Down Syndrome Day

March 21 is World Down Syndrome Day.The date was chosen to signify the uniqueness of Down syndrome in the triplication (trisomy) of the 21st chromosome and is used synonymously with Down syndrome.

In June, it’ll be two years since I’ve begun work with a small national DS charity. In these months, I have developed new skills, stepped into the cut-throat world of charity fundraising, attended meetings in Parliament and interacted with some amazing children and parents in the UK and internationally, including India.

Working for the charity has given me a greater understanding into the lives of people with disabilities. The work being done in the UK is nothing short of amazing. I want to see that same kind of attention in India. Fingers crossed – someday it will happen.
