Thank you for visiting our profile page on MyDonate.
Miss Hilda Castang set up the H&M Castang Charitable Trust in 1986 following the death of her brother Max who had been born with cerebral palsy. Miss Castang felt that her brother Max did not have the quality of life he would have wished because of his cerebral palsy and was determined to provide funds for research into the causes and prevention of cerebral palsy and other neurodevelopment disorders.

Around 10 children in 1000 are still born with some sort of disability. The Castang Foundation would like every child to have the best possible start in life and an environment that encourages healthy growth and development.

The Castang Foundation funds research projects around the world and runs workshops to discuss issues and those meetings have led to the publication of books and reports. Despite Miss Castang’s generosity her legacy cannot possibly meet the increasing costs of necessary research projects and meetings. For this reason we are launching a major fundraising appeal to increase our capital to enable the work to continue. Please donate to support our cause.
