About MDAS

Problem Statements

Teams must choose a single problem statement and develop their deliverables accordingly.

MDAS (Muscular Dystrophy Association (Singapore)) was founded in 2000 to provide care and support to people with Muscular Dystrophy (MD) in Singapore. We are committed to providing health and public education on MD as well as supporting medical research.

Muscular Dystrophy is an illness that is often overlooked. By raising awareness for this social cause, we can educate people on how to care for their loved ones who are affected by it and the general population.

2. Recruit volunteers to support MDAS

MDAS runs several programs and is constantly seeking volunteers to support its activities. By supporting this social cause, you will aid in recruiting volunteers.
