Karachi Down Syndrome Program celebrated World Down Syndrome Day 2015 on the 22nd of March 2015 by hosting a KDSP Carnival at the Beach Luxury Hotel to provide an event for everyone to gather, have fun, learn and eat; to create an inclusive society for the children with down syndrome and their family. The event had a huge turnout and help of various sponsors. Our silver sponsor for the event was Unilever (Pvt) Ltd.
21 Billboards were also set up around Karachi in different locations, to celebrate the fact that it’s the 21st chromosome that makes these children so special to us. It also highlighted KDSP’s message of recognising the potential of people with Down syndrome.
Representatives of KDSP also appeared on Morning Shows on various TV channels. Awareness was spread through Dawn, Aaj, Health, News One and Hum channels.
