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.

Spring clean and help our children

Now that spring is here, it's time to rid your home of winter cobwebs and clutter!

But please don't throw those unwanted items away.
LITTLE EDEN would be so grateful to receive them – particularly clothing, shoes and linen in good condition.

Items which cannot be used directly by our residents or in our homes are sold through our second-hand shop, and proceeds go towards the cost of caring for our family of 300 children and adults with profound intellectual disability. Most of our residents have been abandoned, or come from indigent families who are unable to pay for their care. Income from the second-hand shop plays an important role in providing the funds we need.

Right now the shop is running low on clothing, jewellery, kitchen equipment, books, sportsware, bric-a-brac and more. Items can be dropped off at our Domitilla and Danny Hyams Home (cnr Wagenaar/Harris Avenue, Edenglen) or at the shop (cnr 3rd St/8th Ave, Edenvale). While you're there, spend a bit of time browsing and you could find an unexpected treasure yourself!

And if you just want to celebrate spring – and the promise of new life and new opportunities – why not make a donation towards the care of our special angels? Thank you so much!


For more information on our second-hand shop, please call Nichollette Mutige on 011 609 7246 or click here.
