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.
We wish you and your family all the joy and hope that Easter, with its promise of eternal life, brings.
At LITTLE EDEN, the children will gather at the chapel for Mass to celebrate Easter. Even though many of them do not understand the meaning of this feast day, there will be silence in the chapel – almost as if they know they are in the presence of the Lord, and feel his calming hand on them.
Afterwards comes all the fun of the Easter egg hunt; like all children, ours also love the sweet taste of soft marshmallow chocolate eggs.
Because most of the children don’t walk normally, the soles of their shoes wear unevenly and the uppers get torn and scuffed from being dragged along the ground. Not surprisingly some of the shoes are looking quite scruffy – as you can see from this recent picture.
But at R229 for a pair of cross trainers with good support and cushioning to make walking comfortable, we can't afford to buy new shoes for all the children that need them. Unless caring people like you will help.
