The Mustela Foundation


Since 1982, the Mustela Foundation has been committed to improving the quality of life of children and families around the world.


The Mustela Foundation supports families in the most important moments of their lives

The arrival of a child is an upheaval in the life of any family and parents can have a lot of questions. The Mustela Foundation provides them with information guides and fun media (quizzes, games, interactive videos, etc.) addressing many topics relating to their concerns. Pregnancy, childbirth, returning home, prevention against domestic accidents and even children’s sleep issues are discussed.

All Mustela Foundation content is validated by childhood professionals: pediatric nurses, psychologists, midwives or pediatricians, in order to guarantee its accuracy and the regular updating of the information supplied to families.

The Mustela Foundation also engages with researchers and childhood professionals

For more than 35 years, the Mustela Foundation has been supporting research. Every year scholarships are awarded in psychology, psychiatry, pediatrics, neurology, sociology and history.

The Mustela Foundation also awards numerous prizes, including the Maieutics Prize, which marks its commitment to midwives in France and Europe, and the annual Social Pediatrics Prize, which recognizes projects for the benefit of children and their families.

Focus on some examples of projects supported by the Mustela Foundation

  • PORTUGAL: support for mothers in socio-economic difficulty
  • TURKEY: renovation of a youth center in Istanbul
  • FRANCE: funding of Paro, a therapeutic robot in the form of a plush seal, to combat pain and reduce the anxiety of children treated in a hospital pediatric ward.

And last but not least, the Foundation helps people in emergency situations. In 2017, for example, it supported the Peruvian Red Cross for families affected by the floods in March in the north of the country.
