LOVE-COUNTS

There is a dream inside the heart of every man, woman and child, to be loved and to love.

Peace, love security and respect for human rights are the corner stone’s for human dignity and life, more so for persons with disabilities. Down syndrome is the most common and naturally occurring chromosomal genetic condition and is the largest single cause of intellectual disabilities. In South Africa, one in every 500 babies is born with Down syndrome each year.

THINK OF ME FIRST AS A PERSON
You look at me first with pity, concern or indifference, For I am a disabled child But you see only the outside of me. If I could express myself, I would tell you that inside I am very much like you!
Think of me first as a person, Who hurts and loves and feels joy. And know I am a child to encourage and direct. Smile and say hello … Even that is enough.
