The parents of children who have Down syndrome have declared March as the “Month to promote Down syndrome in a good way”; in this connection they are organizing many events for the public. The World Down Syndrome International at the United Nations has expressed its appreciation for the positive initiative of the Mongolian parents.
The parents tasked themselves in promoting the motto of World Down Syndrome International – “What to Say (And What Not to Say)” about the condition in public. In December 2011, the United Nations General Assembly declared the 21st March as World Down Syndrome Day. “20+1=Special Gift” exhibition is a remarkable exhibition currently being displayed at the “Blue Mon” gallery in central Ulaanbaatar (just next to the Urgoo 2 cinema). The gallery shows photographs of children of a variety of ages.
