World Down Syndrome Day

21 March is World Down Syndrome Day (WDSD) as declared by the United Nations General Assembly in December 2011.

It is a global event to raise awareness and exemplify the abilities of persons with Down syndrome while advocating equal rights for them. The 21st day of March was selected to signify the uniqueness of the triplication (trisomy) of the 21st chromosome which causes Down syndrome.
On this day, we encourage everyone to wear odd socks to show their support for the Down syndrome community. Odd socks were chosen as a symbol for WDSD because chromosomes are shaped like socks, and those with Down syndrome have an extra chromosome.

Join us to promote full inclusion on World Down Syndrome Day.

Platter of Joy

Platter of Joy is a meal delivery fundraising initiative conceptualised during the COVID-19 pandemic where families and friends can enjoy their “Platter of Joy” in the comfort and safety of their homes, and at the same time give back to the community.

With every purchase of our “Platter of Joy”, you can be the change agent to raise awareness within the community on advocating for effective and meaningful participating of our beneficiaries through accessible information, support and inclusive consultation.


DSA’s annual Mystique event is the association’s signature fundraising event, where the funds raised will go towards sustaining the programs and services to our beneficiaries with Down syndrome and their families.

If you’d like to find out more about how you contribute to this event, drop us a message.
