Muscular Dystrophy refers to a group of hereditary muscle diseases that weaken the muscles that move the human body.  Muscular dystrophies are characterized by progressive skeletal muscle weakness, defects in muscle proteins, and the death of muscle cells and tissue.

boy playing1Muscular Dystrophy Group Malta was formed in 1980 by a group of parents of children with various forms of muscular dystrophy, with the primary aim of getting together to share experiences.  It now provides support for some 50 persons in Malta and Gozo. 

If you have a child or relative with muscular dystrophy, or would like to make a donation or help our group in some capacity then please contact us.
