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.
What could be more heartwarming than watching a child’s face light up with excitement
and wonder ... knowing that it’s all because of you?
And when that child has disabilities that keep him or her confined to a wheelchair, being
able to give a little joy at Christmas is even more special.
Our children may not have the same understanding or ability to express themselves as other children.
But when they hear Santa’s bell ringing through the Home, they get so excited ... knowing
that he’ll soon appear with a brightly wrapped gift especially for them.
Whether it’s a doll or a ball, a jigsaw puzzle or a
new t-shirt doesn’t matter. Because whatever the
gift, it says the same thing: you are loved.
Your gift not only brings the joy of a gift wrapped present ... it also carries with it the
unspoken message: “you matter to me”... “your happiness
is important” ... “you are loved”.
These gifts of love, care, comfort, hope and dignity are needed every day of the year, not only
at Christmas time.
And we can give them only because people like you support us so generously.
Thank you sincerely, and may your own Christmas be even more blessed, knowing you've shared the spirit of the season with children who can never thank you.
