The Muscular Dystrophy Group of Malta was set up in 1980 by a group of parents of children with various forms of muscular dystrophies with the primary aim of getting together to share experiences.
As the meeting progressed, a few primary members (persons with a neuromuscular condition) also joined the Group, and the need was felt to approve a statute and to start organising fund raising activities to assist the Muscular Dystrophy Group in its ever widening scope of services and activities.
To-day the committee of the Muscular Dystrophy Group has to comprise, according to an amended statute, 5 primary members of the 9 who form the committee. In fact the current committee is comprised of 5 primary members (including the Chairperson and the Secretary), 1 parent and 3 volunteers.
The assistance that our Group provides for its circa 50 members, has extended widely and continues to expand as primary members extend the parameters within which they live.
But this should be after all, the main objective of the Muscular Dystrophy Group and any other similar organisation. For more information about Muscular Dystrophy please click here.
