“Eden is a place where children with disabilities, their parents and friends can experience love, care, have confidence, express their emotion and feeling and get hope, confidence and meaning of lives. Visit us to experience and taste real inclusiveness.”
There is no fear in love.
LOVE is patient, love is kind, love is not self-seeking, love is not easily anger.
It keeps no record of wrongs. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud, it is not rude.
We, ECDC, believe that -
“With LOVE all things are possible”
