Down syndrome is a congenital disorder with an incidence of around one in every 800 births. It is the most common chromosomal disorder, affecting about one in every 600 live births. Down syndrome usually presents during the first year of life with characteristic physical, mental, and behavioral abnormalities.

Down syndrome babies are born with characteristic features, including muscle weakness, small stature, high pitched cry, and learning difficulties. down syndrome is a life-long condition that requires continuous care and should not be taken for granted.

Born with Down syndrome is not a mistake, it’s not something that needs to be fixed, and it doesn’t mean you’re not as good as anyone else. It means you have something unique to offer the world, and you should be proud of that. To help raise awareness for World Down Syndrome Day, this blog post will provide a brief information on how to celebrate the day, and tips for raising awareness in your community.

World Down Syndrome Day is celebrated every year on the 21th of March to raise public awareness about Down syndrome and celebrate the lives of people with Down syndrome and those who live and work with them throughout the world. Down syndrome is a serious genetic disorder that affects development in the womb. Around one in every 636 babies is born with Down syndrome, which is more than triple the rate of Edwards Syndrome. Down syndrome is an obstetrical emergency, and while most babies with Down syndrome are born healthy, they can still have some problems during their early life.

Traveling is one of the most enriching and liberating experiences that anyone can have. Down syndrome doesn’t stop a person from traveling, it merely makes it a little more challenging. That’s why we encourage everyone to go out and experience the world. Down syndrome tours are a great way to get a closer look at what life is like for people with this condition, while also raising awareness and funds for down syndrome research. Book your tour today and enjoy your journey!

We had a wonderful tour of Turkey

We had a wonderful tour of Turkey, which included Anzac day at Anzac cove, our guide & driver were excellent & we only had a small number on our bus. Hotels were 4 star or more, but were out of towns. Food was good mainly buffets. Great value for money. Turkish people were lovely.


Excellent value and comprehensive tour of top sights.

Excellent and experienced guide Oscar was a wealth of knowledge and fun to travel with.
The airport pickup and departures were smooth and well organized. Hotels were all of good quality though some were a distance from the cities visited. Lunch/dinner buffets were fairly repetitive in content, but you could always find something good and one never goes hungry. The vehicle used, a minibus, was modern, clean and “Fati” was a safe and excellent driver. There are some quite long driving days to cover so much territory, but in 10 days you will have seen many of Türkiye’s most famous and beautiful sights. Very good value for money and a responsive and communicative travel company to work with. I look forward to future adventures with TravelShop.
