It has been over a year since COVID-19 swept the world into a pandemic. It's hard to not miss how things were, but life continues on. Many of us are slowly adjusting to the new normal, and MDAS is no different. We will be holding our Flag Day 2021 - Go the Dystance with MDAS from the 1st of August till the 30th of September. We would like to appeal for your generosity in the support of this campaign. As a non-profit organisation, we rely on your generous donations to enable us to fulfil our goals in inspiring hope and enriching the lives of people with muscular dystrophy and their families.

MDAS is committed to uplifting the lives of children and adults living with MD. As a dedicated group, we understand the challenges they face, and as such, our programmes and services are aimed at enhancing the quality of life for these families. These range from life-skills training and health education to physiotherapy, respite care and financial-related assistance. Our support ensures that every life journey of a person with MD is cared for holistically.

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. Tote Board and the Government will also contribute dollar-for-dollar matching for every donation for this event!

Be our strength. Join us in the fight against MD.

*Donations above $50 are applicable for a 250% tax exemption.

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.
