Join us on 28th November 2020 7pm for our inaugural virtual gala live on Facebook as we take a look back at how MDAS became what we are today and hear inspirational stories from persons with MD themselves.
More details to come in Oct!
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.
Today as we continue to relentlessly pursue our promise of easing families from the life-threatening effects of MD, we wish to appeal to you.
Please support MDAS and make a contribution towards our 20th Anniversary Charity Virtual Gala to raise $100,000 which will enable us to run essential programmes and services for over 500 beneficiaries.
Be our strength. Join us in the fight against MD.
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.
