Join a UAEGDA Support Group

The UAE Genetic Diseases Association (GDA) understands the unique challenges faced by individuals and families living with genetic disorders. That’s why we offer confidential and supportive face-to-face or virtual group sessions, providing a safe space to connect, share your experiences, and explore the difficulties you might be facing.

Here's what you can expect:

· A supportive environment

Our groups are facilitated by experienced specialists who create a safe and welcoming space for open communication and connection.

· Shared experiences

Connect with others who understand the challenges you’re facing. This can help you feel less alone, isolated, or judged.

· Guidance and support

Our facilitators guide the conversation and ensure everyone feels heard and supported.

· Increased knowledge and coping skills

Learn from others’ experiences and gain practical strategies to manage your challenges and improve your well-being.

· A sense of hope and empowerment

Sharing your story and connecting with others can foster a sense of hope and empower you to move forward.
