New members of the International OI Community in Pakistan!

On Tuesday 25 November CLAN was proud to partner with colleagues and families at the National Institute of Child Health (NICH) in Karachi to celebrate the launch of Pakistan's first Osteogenesis Imperfecta (OI) Support Club.

With around 16 families gathering to share stories, experiences and questions, this was an important day for connecting and supporting. Families were introduced to efforts internationally to optimise quality of life for children living with OI, and in particular, the fantastic achievements of communities in Vietnam and Indonesia (FOSTEO!!) were communicated.

#WBDPhotoChallenge list December

Have you been playing along with the #WBDPhotoChallenge?  It's a fun and creative way to share your perspective with the world.  Here is the #WBDPhotoChallenge list for December.




The rules are simple: 
  • Use the challenge list each month (posted here) to inspire one photo each day 
  • Find inspiration in your ordinary (or extraordinary) day! Take a photo. 
  • Share on InstagramFacebookTwitter, or Pinterest  
  • Join the community by tagging with #WBDPhotoChallenge (like and share with others)
  • Have fun!!

The view from here #WBDPhotoChallenge is not unlike other photo-a-day challenges where participants draw inspiration from their ordinary lives, snap a photo and share with others. What is different about the #WBDPhotoChallenge is that each inspired image will be from the perspective of people with disability.
