Muscular Dystrophy is a group of genetic muscle conditions characterized by progressive muscle weakness and wasting. Many of these beneficiaries face difficulties completing the simplest of tasks, like raising their hands in class or feeding themselves. Later in life, the condition worsens and progressively affects muscles near the heart and lungs, resulting in the need to rely on respiratory aids.

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.
