Today marks the 12th edition of World Down Syndrome Day. It is a high time more people should come forward to build public awareness and create a global voice for advocating the rights, inclusion and well-being of people with Down syndrome. We should try to understand how unique every people affected with down syndrome are and recognise the contributions they can make to the world.

Down syndrome is a set of physical and mental traits caused by a gene problem that happens before birth. Children who have Down syndrome tend to have certain features, such as a flat face and a short neck. They also have some degree of intellectual disability. This varies from person to person. But in most cases, it is mild to moderate.

Down syndrome is a lifelong condition. But with care and support, children who have Down syndrome can grow up to have healthy, happy, productive lives.

On this World Down Syndrome Day, let us take  a look at some unconditional and heart-melting pictures of children with Down Syndrome at the Amar Jyoti Research and Rehabilitation Centre, New Delhi.
