Our Campaign Story

ends 31 Mar 2021, 11:59 PM

Muscular Dystrophy (MD) is a group of genetic disorder that will result in muscle weakness over time. The disorder can cause problem with walking, swallowing and muscle co-ordination.

Holding a pen or clapping our hands may come to us effortlessly, but for MD members, it can be a huge challenge.

Life is tough for MD members. But, with your generous support, MD members can access various programmes and services at the Muscular Dystrophy Association (Singapore) (MDAS) that can help slow the course of the disorder, build confidence, instill independent living and improve their quality of life.

Your contribution also enables MDAS to provide MD members financial assistance on motorised wheelchair & transport subsidies for wheelchair friendly vehicles. These can help them get out and get around, attend programmes and activities, receive therapy, and live a meaningful life.

Your generous donation will go towards supporting MDAS's operating expenditure in providing programmes, services, all supporting costs for over 500 beneficiaries and sustain its operating activities.

While there's no known cure for MD, let's help make life a little easier and better for MD members, as they face their daily challenges.

Thank you for reading this far and thank you very much for making a difference.
