Fifth CEO wheelchair campaign gets rolling

SAFMH News Room

With March dedicated to Intellectual Disability Awareness Month in South Africa, Little Eden Society launched its fifth annual CEO Wheelchair Campaign on 1 March 2022.

CEOs taking part in the campaign were challenged to spend one workday in a wheelchair.

The campaign created awareness about the challenges faced by people with limited mobility and raised much-needed funds for the society that cares for 300 residents with profound intellectual disabilities.

SAFMH’s Deputy director, Leon de Beer said supporting the work of Little Eden has tremendous value for the federation. Leon shared:

“When I think about the value of service, I always think about what would happen if that service was not there. All these amazing residents would not have a place to call home.”
