The Mus­cu­lar Dys­tro­phy As­so­ci­a­tion (Sin­ga­pore) con­tin­ues to raise aware­ness about mus­cle diseases and em­pow­er­ing its ben­e­fi­cia­ries through its pro­grammes

Feed­ing them­selves, climb­ing up the stairs, rais­ing their hands—these are just a few of the ev­ery­day tasks that peo­ple suf­fer­ing from mus­cu­lar dys­tro­phy strug­gle to per­form. This group of ge­netic diseases that causes pro­gres­sive mus­cle weak­en­ing is what the Mus­cu­lar Dys­tro­phy As­so­ci­a­tion (Sin­ga­pore) (MDAS) has been work­ing to raise aware­ness about since 2000. Through its an­nual gala din­ner, MDAS hopes to raise funds for its in­te­grated care plan that seeks to equip ben­e­fi­cia­ries with func­tional and so­cial skills, and boost their em­ploy­a­bil­ity with vo­ca­tional train­ing. The Brazil­ian-themed fete will take place on Septem­ber 22, at Shangri-la Ho­tel, Sin­ga­pore’s Tower Ball­room. Guests can look for­ward to a cat­walk seg­ment show­cas­ing hats by homegrown millinery Eskpade. mdas.org.sg
