One of the game board’s blocks will be allocated for charity donations. Every time a player ‘falls’ on the allocated space, BD 1 will be donated to Bahrain Down Syndrome Society – a charity organisation that provides support to health, psychology, education and social services to individuals with Down Syndrome in Bahrain. The total donations from the game will provide essential school supplies to children that have been diagnosed with Down Syndrome.
