VHS Hospital Chennai celebrated WDSD

Every year pre-covid, VHS Hospitals celebrated World Down Syndrome Day with our self-advocates and parents. After two years, the event was conducted once again in style. Dr. Shyamala, President of the IAP Chennai Chapter was the Chief guest. She promised to ensure that the Doctor fraternity supports our self-advocates. Looking at them, there is no way someone can differentiate them from others. They have their talents, their individuality that provides them with their uniqueness. There was inclusive dance and inspiring speeches by our parents who spoke about their pride and happiness in having a person with Down syndrome in their lives. On what they expected from society, all parents had only one request – that society understands the needs of their children and support them, make them as a part of society rather than discriminate against them.
