managed by The Eden Social Welfare Foundation T.
Ms. Liu Hsia, a female wheelchair writer suffering from rheumatic arthritis, witnessed the discrimination against people with disabilities in Taiwan. In response to God's calling and with a great love for the people with physical and mental disabilities, she decided to create a place where the disabled are truly cared for and loved - The Garden of Eden in Dreams. On December 1, 1982, Eden Social Welfare Foundation was founded to serve people with disabilities as well as other socially marginalized groups.
Our mission is to serve the weak to witness Christ and to promote Gospel and welfare to bring people to God.
Today, Eden has almost 2,000 staffs, of which nearly 25 percent are people with disabilities. Eden is now operating nearly 80 service centers in Taiwan. In addition, Eden has supported the establishment of two overseas Malaysian sister organizations in Penang (1991) and Kuala Lumpur (2000) and built up service centers in Vietnam (2005) and Sichuan, China (2008). Services provided by Eden include vocational training, employment service, rehabilitation, early intervention, long-term care service, new immigrant service, and community reconstruction for disaster victims.
