Our Campaign Storyends 29 Nov 2017, 11:59 PM
Down Syndrome isn't a disease nor is it contagious. It's a genetic condition caused by the presence of an extra chromosome 21. Every child or adult individual is a beautiful, unique, amazing, lovable, and above all, non-judgemental person. They have every right to be who they are and more, within our society. We, a group of loving people, want to garner as much sponsorships and donations in our fund raiser pledge, to ensure that DSA will have funds to continue doing what they do for these incredible bunch of individuals, be it children or adults and their doting caregivers.
DSA is a self funded, non profit Voluntary Welfare Organization.
They are dependent on donations from the corporate community & members of the public
Currently DSA provides:
- programmes for babies, children and adults with Down syndrome
- Integrated support programmes for children with Down syndrome studying in mainstream schools.
- Enrichment programmes such as dance, speech & drama, sports, to enhance and develop skills
- Help integrate and assimilate a person with Down syndrome into the society.
- support to families & caregivers to have a place to mind their wards, should they need to take a break.
We would like to thank everyone who contributed to DSA, to make a difference in their lives!
Your contribution is deeply appreciated, and we would be grateful if you can share our link, so that more people can contribute to our society :)
