The Muscular Dystrophy Association of New Zealand, commonly known as the MDA, began in the late 1950’s as a support group for families affected by muscular dystrophy. Since then the MDA has broadened its scope to support many other neuromuscular conditions. We are proud to have Judy Bailey and Dame Susan Devoy as our longstanding patrons.
You can help us to create a community of support for more than 4,000 New Zealanders living with the impact of Muscular Dystrophy and other rare neuromuscular conditions. Your donation ensures we can we can provide practical support, fund resources and be an independent voice, advocating for equality of opportunity for our members living with the challenge of a degenerative neuromuscular condition.
And through our research arm, your support through Kiwi Karma, helps the advancement of science and technology, so that our members receive better care, can make more informed decisions and have hope for future treatments of these rare and incurable conditions.
Thank you for your generosity.
