2023 SRDC Charity Raffle
We sincerely thank you all for your generous support towards 2023 SRDC Charity Raffle. The draw was officiated by our Chairman Mr. CHEUNG Tat-tong, BBS, JP and monitored by Dr. Chan Kam-hoi, HCE of DKCH on 26 September. A big thank you for all your support! By buying the raffle tickets you are supporting the Mitochondrial Disease Diagnostic Test. And congratulations to all winners!
2023 Charity Raffle is raising funds to support complex diagnostic tests and related treatment research for Inherited Metabolic Disorders (IMDs). IMDs are genetic conditions that impact the body’s metabolic processes, causing an abnormal accumulation or deficiency of metabolites. Currently, over 1,400 different types of IMDs have been identified, including mitochondrial diseases. IMDs may result in serious developmental, neurological, and organ-related complications, and even death. Early detection may enable patients to have prompt diagnosis and treatment. However, some IMDs are very uncommon, and may require complex diagnostic testing on a research basis in overseas centres. Timely diagnosis with targeted treatment may improve the overall disease outcome. Unfortunately, some IMDs, such as mitochondrial diseases, do not have a definitive cure at the moment. Affected children may have limited life expectancy. Therefore, there is an urgent need to conduct research on new treatment strategies.
