21 March has a special place in our hearts in Porka Nova, it is the day when we celebrate the people with Down Syndrome Day, we raise awareness and advocate for their rights! This year the official theme of this day is 𝐖𝐢𝐭𝐡 𝐔𝐬 𝐍𝐨𝐭 𝐅𝐨𝐫 𝐔𝐬 therefore we joined an activity that is aligned with this statement!
This year we wear off mismatched colored socks and rolled our way to the bowling alley “Pelister Pin” in Bitola. There we were welcomed by Igor Mihajlovski, the manager of the alley, along with other bowlers, members from local schools and faculties and the major of the Municipality of Bitola, Mr. Toni Konjanovski.
The happiest were, of course our participants from Poraka Nova, which we dedicated this day, coming all the way from Struga. Igor Shajnovski, a boy with Down Syndrome, gave his speech and say that we should always play together, help each other so the things will become more bearable for everyone.
This event is one of those that is not only for celebrating, but raising awareness for the quality of lives of people with disabilities, it is one of those that we giving the floor to them, so they can speak by themselves, and we will be motivated to keep going and making things easier for
them. We hope that we will multiply events like this and we will keep collaborating with the local organizations and institutions.
