In celebration of mothers


Mothers are the rock on which a child’s future is built. They have the power to influence attitude, behaviour and beliefs that will last a lifetime. So, as Mother’s Day draws near, we thank and acknowledge all mothers – especially the ‘mother’ of LITTLE EDEN, Domitilla Rota Hyams, who was born in May 100 years ago.


Most of the special angels at LITTLE EDEN have been abandoned and have no contact with their biological mothers. Domitilla loved and cared for them as if they were her own. And as her LITTLE EDEN family grew, she sought out other compassionate, loving and patient women to help her ‘mother’ the children.


This Mother’s Day, we salute these amazing women for their dedication and service … for the special bonds they build with children who can’t say, “I love you” … for their encouragement and joy at every small achievement.


Please join us in giving these exceptional ‘mothers’ all the support they need to continue their wonderful work.

Because children can’t survive on love alone. They also need food, clothing and a bed to sleep in … wheelchairs, walking frames and medical care.


Your special Mother’s Day donation – made now online in honour of your own mother – will provide the basic necessities, and enable our surrogate mothers to continue providing the best possible care to children and adults with profound intellectual disability. Thank you for caring.

Mothers bring joy and laughter to life.
Please support our LITTLE EDEN ‘mothers’ by
making a contribution towards the cost
of caring for our precious ‘angels’ .
