Support a Child

We believe that with your support we can make a visible difference to the lives of many at the Down syndrome Association of India

Message from Dr. Surekha Ramachandran, President - DSFI

In view of this acute pandemic COVID 19, and keeping in mind the safety of everyone, the Chair of our Scientific Committee, Dr. S. Suresh has advised the Federation to postpone IIDSC 2020. We will keep you intimated on the new dates as and when it is decided upon by the Down Syndrome Federation of India. We are disappointed, but then I believe the safety of our children is always the First Priority for me. So Stay Indoors and Stay Safe! Please do pass on this information to your other groups so they are informed about the postponement of IIDSC 2020.
