17 muscles to smile
22 muscles to high five
35 muscles to move your hand
200 muscles to walk

These are things we do easily in our everyday lives however they are not relatable to persons stricken with Muscular Dystrophy(MD).

MD is a chronic condition which causes the gradual weakening of the muscles. Persons diagnosed with MD face difficulties doing simple tasks such as raising their hands. The condition will eventually affect the functions of major organs like the heart and lungs. These individuals will eventually have to rely on life-giving equipment (e.g. breathing machine).

Muscular Dystrophy Association (Singapore), MDAS, provides care and support for persons with muscular dystrophy and their families. MDAS strongly believes in the abilities of our beneficiaries and see potential in them. Our programmes and services aim to uplift the lives of our beneficiaries. With support and encouragement, one can look beyond their condition to lead purposeful lives no different from others.

MDAS is a self-help organisation which relies greatly on donations to keep our programmes and services going. Funds raise through this Flag Day will go directly into covering the operating cost of our essential programmes and services.

Your support will give hope and encouragement to persons battling with this life-threatening condition to strive on.

Together we can fight muscular dystrophy!

About the Charity

The Muscular Dystrophy Association (Singapore), MDAS, is a non-profit social service agency that empowers persons with Muscular Dystrophy and their families through programmes and services. MDAS is a full member of NCSS and a registered charity with IPC (Institution of Public Character) status.

Since our inception in March 2000, our mission is:
- To provide care and support to people with Muscular Dystrophy;
- To provide health and public education on Muscular Dystrophy;
- And to support medical research on Muscular Dystrophy

Muscular Dystrophy (MD) is a group of genetic physical conditions characterised by muscle-weakening and contractures. Persons with MD face challenges with activities of daily living, from flipping a page in a book, to toileting and bathing. Many persons with MD have to rely on mobility aids, especially a motorised wheelchair, in order to commute. There is currently no known cure for MD.

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.


Fundraising can help to raise more and change more lives.
