Written by Adekoya on March 21, 2019
As Nigerians join the rest of the world to mark this year’s Down syndrome day, Parents and Caregivers have called on the Federal Government to implement the disability law, in order to protect the rights and interest of Persons Living with Down syndrome in the country.
The day was created to bring together people with Down syndrome, supporters, as well as experts in disability management and government, to raise public awareness and also create a single voice for advocating the rights, inclusion and well being of people with Down syndrome.
The theme of this year’s celebration is : Leave No One Behind.
