The Muscular Dystrophy Association (Singapore), MDAS, is a self-help organisation formed in March 2000. We are committed to uplift the lives of people with Muscular Dystrophy.

Muscular Dystrophy is the name given to a large group of muscle diseases characterised by the development of muscle weakness, wasting and contractures, that are usually progressive and sometimes life threatening. These diseases often manifest in childhood, although some may begin in adulthood. Each disease is caused by one of a large variety of inherited gene abnormalities. At present, there is no cure for Muscular Dystrophy.

MDAS understands the challenges faced by people with Muscular Dystrophy and their families. MDAS extends its membership privileges to all children, youth and adults with Muscular Dystrophy as well as their families.
