Lo realizado por FUNDOWN CARIBE  en estos 3 meses: la exhibición de dos vallas publicitarias, el haber repartido 15.000 volantes informativos en 100 taxis de Barranquilla, haber realizado 2 eventos culturales públicos en Centros Comerciales de esta ciudad, haber entregado a 100 médicos pediatras un cd con el protocolo médico y 2 boletines informativos y las visitas que se vienen realizando a 42 colegios públicos y privados, cumplió su objetivo de llamar la atención a la sociedad en general de que todos somos diferentes y de que son nuestras aptitudes y habilidades las que nos diferencian a un ser humano de otro. Lo que nos distingue nos hace únicos, por eso, debemos aprender a valorar y respetar las diferencias. Con estas actividades también buscamos ir más allá de los imaginarios que plantean que todas aquellas personas con Síndrome de Down son iguales, es por esto que celebramos la individualidad y mostramos lo diferentes que son unos de otros.

Hemos hecho la diferencia, basta sólo mirar las caras de nuestros afiliados que han participado en todas estas actividades…

Nuevamente gracias a todos ustedes que creyeron en este proyecto, necesitamos seguir contando con su apoyo para que esta campaña sea continua y permanente, tenemos mucho por hacer…esto fue solo el comienzo…

Recuerda, la diferencia la hace uno….

The accomplishments achieved by FUNDOWN CARIBE these 3 months: the display of two billboards, distributing 15,000 flyers in 100 taxis in Barranquilla, 2 cultural public events in shopping malls of this city, having delivered to 100 pediatricians a CD with the medical protocol and 2 newsletters and the visits that are being made to 42 public and private schools, met its goal of drawing attention to the general public that we are all different and our abilities and skills are what distinguishes a human being from another. What distinguishes us makes us unique, so we must learn to value and respect differences. With these activities we also seek going beyond the imaginary that all persons with Down Syndrome are the same, which is why we celebrate the individuality and show how different they are from each other.

We have made a difference, just take a look at the faces of our members who participated in these activities.

 Again, thank you for all of you who believed in this project, we need your continued support for this campaign  to be continuous and ongoing, we have so much to do ...this was only a start..


Remember, one makes the difference ....
