The mothers in the Center offer us so many smiles. They trust us enough now to share with us how difficult the path is to liberty and autonomy. They have started sharing with us their worries, their fears, and also their dreams. In these women from various tribes, some people only see poor women without education. But we have discovered in them wonderful riches made of courage, greatness of soul and dignity.
Constanza and Pierre - Chiang Mai Mission [Thailand]
MANY THANKS to all our volunteers working with women in difficulty.

Our volunteers in South Africa and their local partner !

With the majority of our residents in wheelchairs @LITTLE EDEN privileged to have the help of Ruth Stubbs seating practitioner of The Paige Project.

To help our residents to #bemybest she once a month for free trains our staff, as well as Care Centre Supervisor of the Domitilla & Danny Hyams Home Stoilka Galabova and Fidesco volunteers Blandine Josse, Laure Pinel, Marie Casassus-Builhé and Lise-Marie Chauvin how to identify and correct seating problems with residents.

The correct seating is vital for a happy resident, as well as for each one’s development as a person and health.

We cannot help feeling some emotion while writing these lines, but it is time for us now to hand over our mission : to pass it on to others who will make it evolve differently but with all their heart.
We are so happy to have spent these two years as a family with the Salesians Brothers and Fathers. We are so lucky to have been able to share a little of the life of our brothers and sisters in Madagascar.

Bruno and Céline, about to pass over the flame of mission to the next volunteers !
