I am Antonia Bih from Northwest Region of Cameroon. I am based in Cameroon particularly in Bamenda. I am married with three children. My first boy Aidrikings was born with Down Syndrome syndrome. I have lived since then to be a special mother having a special child and an advocate for my child and other persons living with the same condition.
Currently, I am the founder and promoter of Down syndrome Association Cameroon which has an objective, to empower and advocate for the persons living with Down syndrome. I am passionate about social works and humanitarian actions especially towards persons living with disabilities in general and Down Syndrome in particular.
Having a child with Down syndrome, was not very easy in terms of acceptance from the community as lots of negative views were always there. Thank God for giving me a supportive husband, family and amazing friends that stood by my side and today we all see Aidrikings as the King and I am honored to be the king's mother
My vision is to inpire/see a world where people will be related to based on their abilities not on their weaknesses due to disabilities.
I need and wish community should be able to accept persons with disabilities and relate with them without stigmatization
