The decision to create the Lebanese Association for Neuromuscular diseases L.A.N.D has been taken to help spread awareness about the difficulties both patients and their families’ experience from the moment they discover their child was born with a lack of a certain gene that helps them live a normal healthy life to living with it, embracing it and enabling them to continue on living their lives uninterrupted by lack of knowledge and fear of progression.
L.A.N.D will help our small community understand that living with such a disability should not hinder or stop our children or us. We are aspiring to do so by sending a wakeup call, help reach solutions, direct towards the right channels to deal with it, aid towards the proper follow up, aid in selecting & buying adequate equipment for the child, rearranging home furniture enabling freer movement within the home environment, push towards integrating our children in our society, increase their chances of empowerment, and force acceptance through education.
L.A.N.D will form support groups for families wishing to come together to share & discuss their problems, fears and help raise morale. Children and their parents will be able to lean on each other through difficult times as well as celebrate together their small victories.
L.A.N.D will follow up on all the latest medical development for your child to keep you abreast all current research and discoveries by communicating directly with associations abroad in addition to publishing all recent findings regarding the disease and possible cures, therapy techniques, and therapies advised. 
We are here for you...
