This year for Rare Disease Day 2022 we are calling on everyone to help the rare disease community be united by a chain of lights across the world. In light of COVID-19, this chain will serve as one of the symbolic ways to break isolation globally.
Together we will light up our monuments, our public spaces, our buildings, homes, hospitals, and more to show our resilience and strength towards a better tomorrow. Collectively, we can improve the lives of the #1in15 South Africans living with a rare disease and the more local and national buildings and monuments illuminated,
the bigger the impact!
We will light up the following key places on the 28th February, in celebration of the 4.1 million South African’s living with a rare diseases.
• Sandton City Towers
• Voortrekker Monument
• The Cape Wheel
• MediClinic in Midstream
