World Down Syndrome Day

21 March, is a global awareness day which has been officially observed by the United Nations since 2012.

WDSD was first observed in 2006 by DSA.

Why 21 March?

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.

Through this event, we are hoping to raise $180,000 for DSA’s Independent Living & Training Centre (ILT Centre). This programme aims to help persons with disabilities live as independently as possible – with a centered focus on preparing them for independent living. Adult children of ageing caregivers could practise their independent skills in a communal setting with others in a simulated, home-like environment.

We look forward to receiving your generous support and your presence at this event. Your contributions will pave a path of hope, dignity, and independence for persons with Down syndrome to live a fulfilled and meaningful life!
