IT WAS ALL SMILES and laughter for the children who attended Junior Chamber International’s (JCI) 17th annual project, Special Day For Special Children last Saturday.

The free event, held on the grounds of Ilaro Court, welcomed over 300 children with special needs, some from the Derrick Smith School and Vocational Centre.

Kerryann Ifill, President of the Senate and vice president of the Barbados Council for the Disabled, thanked the JCI committee for their continued efforts in working to normalise disabilities.

She said the fair meant a lot to the children who lived with disabilities and their families, as it provided them with a day to socialise and have a good time. (ACG)
