World Down Syndrome Day

  • by

21st Mac, was a day to remember, World Down Syndrome Day (WDSD) which has been officially observed by United Nations since 2012 as global awareness day. As an initiative to support WDSD awareness, Universal Horizon Sdn Bhd is giving support by getting involved in the #LotsOfSocks campaign.

What is the #LotsOfSocks campaign?
The #LotsOfSocks campaign exists to raise awareness of Down Syndrome, by involved in this can help people talking on World Down Syndrome Day (WDSD). What do we do? The employees wearing socks that can get noticed, mismatched socks or most colourful socks, whatever takes it fancy! The idea was created because chromosomes are shaped “like socks” and people with Down Syndrome have an extra chromosome.

By supporting this campaign, on 25th March our employees wore their craziest and most fancy socks, capturing our socks moments, and share them on social media with the hashtag #LotsOfSocks!
