March 21 is the 13th International Day of Man with Down Syndrome. Russian charities have joined the action in support of sick children.
The memorial day was introduced in 2006 at an international symposium on Down Syndrome in Spain. The date, the 21st day of the 3rd month, was not chosen by chance - the disease develops when three chromosomes appear in the 21st pair of chromosomes instead of the usual two.

According to the Ministry of Health, the number of patients with Down syndrome in 2014 amounted to 15,031 people, which is more than the 2013 figures by more than 1,200.
In support of people with this disease, support actions are held throughout Russia. Holidays in support of people with Down syndrome will be held in Lipetsk, Veliky Novgorod and other cities of Russia, in Vladikavkaz opened the photo exhibition "Is it easy to be near", which captures the "special children" caught in the lens of photographer George Takhokhov.

Charitable Foundation "Syndrome of Love" launched a campaign with a hashtag #WEALTHE SINGLE. The goal is to show that not only people with Down syndrome can’t do anything. “If we cannot do something, it’s just because we are human,” the organizers say. The largest TV channels and media personalities will take part in the All-Russian action: Evelina Bledans, Anna Semenovich, Lyubov Tolkalina, Olga Shelest and many others. The Dozhd TV channel invited several teenagers with Down syndrome to try themselves as correspondents, after which plots with their participation will be shown on the air.
