In relation to the World Down Syndrome Day, Georgia’s President Giorgi Margvelashvili and the First Lady Maka Chichua hosted persons with Down syndrome in Presidential Palace in Tbilisi.

The President walked his guests around the palace together with the First Lady. Besides, Giorgi Margvelashvili personally hosted the youth in his room and talked with them about their rights. The guests were given the constitution of Georgia as well as book vouchers. Before leaving kids with Down syndrome took memorable photos together with the President and the First Lady.

On March 21 people all over the world are encouraged to choose their own activities and events to help raise awareness of what Down syndrome is, what it means to have Down syndrome, and how people with Down syndrome play a vital role in our lives and communities.

Down syndrome is a chromosomal condition that is associated with intellectual disability, a characteristic facial appearance, and weak muscle tone (hypotonia) in infancy. All affected individuals experience cognitive delays, but the intellectual disability is usually mild to moderate.

“People with Down syndrome, on an equal basis with other people, must be able to enjoy full and equal rights, both as children and adults. This includes the opportunity to participate fully in their communities,” - the special website for this day worlddownsyndromeday.org says.
