LITTLE EDEN wishes to acknowledge Newsclip Media Monitoring for their generous support of the Society since 2003, by providing our organisation with pro-bono services. The services that are being rendered to us on a regular basis continue to be of exceptional value to LITTLE EDEN as it enables us to continuously monitor the effectiveness of our marketing and public relations campaigns throughout the year.


LITTLE EDEN wishes to thank the National Lotteries Commission for the continued support we have received over the years. This has made a visible difference to the service we provide and has added value to the lives of our special children with intellectual disabilities. The continued generosity of special donors like the NLC will ensure that our precious residents will continue to live the life they truly deserve, despite the threatening funding landscape that we currently face.

We guarantee your heart will be filled with an incredible mixture of humility, compassion, happiness and gratitude. Our children will inspire you with their joyful smiles, patience and unconditional acceptance. And you'll go away, filled with a new sense of purpose and love.

Please pop in at Domitilla and Danny Hyams Home, 79 Wagenaar Road (cnr Harris Ave), Edenglen anytime between 09h00 and 15h00 on Monday 18 July, where staff will be waiting to welcome you.

You'll be able to:

  • Help sort and fold laundry

If you would like to bring along a contribution, our residents are in need of tracksuits sizes small, medium and large (adult) as well as children's sizes from 7 years old. Garments should preferably be plain with no plastic prints and no full zips.

If you can't make it on the day, you can still make your contribution to the Mandela Day legacy by making a cash donation online.


Donations towards the care of our residents are always needed and gratefully received. Your gift large or small helps ensure LITTLE EDEN continues to be a place of love, security and happiness for children and adults with profound intellectual disability.

We look forward to welcoming you to our home on Monday 18 July
