Embracing the values of Respect, Sanctity of Life and Love & Care, LITTLE EDEN is a registered non-profit organisation [001-827 NPO and PBO No.930/0000/03] providing life-long care to children and adults with profound intellectual disability, in two custom designed facilities geared to helping them reach their full potential.
Who protects the rights of children with Intellectual Disability?
The truth is that it's up to each and every one of us to protect the rights of the most vulnerable members of our society ... children and adults with profound Intellectual Disability.
Because those who cannot walk, talk, or look after themselves, have the right to dignity ... to be treated with respect; to be kept clean, warm and nourished; to receive medical care when necessary; and to be given the opportunity to experience at their own level all that life offers.
But all too often children and adults with Intellectual Disability are ignored, ridiculed, neglected or abused.
At LITTLE EDEN, we believe that these special people have hearts and souls and spirits ... and just as much right to a happy life as anyone else.
With help from caring and compassionate friends like you, every one of our 300 children and adults gets everything they need and deserve: love and care, respect and dignity, and every opportunity to find joy in life.
Since March is Intellectual Disability Month, and 21 March is Human Rights Day, there is no better time to show your support for these 'special' children .... and to make your contribution towards their protection and care at LITTLE EDEN.
Your donation of any amount – made online right now –
will ensure that our Homes continue to be filled with joy and hope ... and that the special people who live here enjoy peace and protection.
