We're the national voice for Down syndrome

Down Syndrome Parents Support Group of Bangladesh is a joint initiative of AMDA Bangladesh and Japan Bangladesh Friendship Hospital, a platform for children born with Down Syndrome and their parents. The sole purpose of this platform is to inspire children born with Down syndrome by enabling them to help change the world and assist them in special needs advocacy, education, employment and social inclusion.

Down Syndrome is not a birth defect. It is, rather, a blessing. Children born with an extra chromosome have unique talents that are not acknowledged. The Down Syndrome Parents Support Group of Bangladesh wishes to educate and create awareness about this condition and offer support for parents with children, relatives or friends who have Down Syndrome.
