Today is the World Down Syndrome Day. The symbol of this day are colored or scattered socks because it is claimed that people with Down syndrome can not pair them. Numbers 21/3 represent 3 copies of chromosomes 21, which is unique to them. Members of “Fit Woman Montenegro” NGO joined the celebration of this date, and today they visited the Day Center. Along with the story, the song and the game, they showed that their organization does not divide the society, and that any differences are not obstacles to gathering.
– Children with Down syndrome have a special need for love and understanding, but like all other children are happy, fun, sociable and should be accepted and equal members of society, said the president of the NGO “Fit Woman Montenegro”, Esma Cerinan Otović.
In support of this date, they put on various socks.
