Annual Danny and Domitilla Hyams Memorial Lecture in the centenary of the birth of Domitilla Rota in Albenza of Almenno San Bartolomeo

On 14, 15 and 16 September 2018 the Association “Domitilla Rota Hyams ONLUS” will celebrate with the Hyams family 100 years of the birth of Domitilla Rota Hyams, co-founder with Daniel Hyams of LITTLE EDEN Society. Domitilla was born in Albenza, Almenno San Bartolomeo (Bergamo, Italy) in 1918 and died in Johannesburg in 2011. She has always been inspired and comforted by Our Lady and her son Jesus and co-founded LITTLE EDEN Society in 1967 along with Daniel in Johannesburg. The institute takes care of 300 people with profound physical and intellectual disabilities. Domitilla was proclaimed Knight of the Order of Merit of the Italian Republic in 1999 and was officially recognized as an honorary citizen of Almenno San Bartolomeo in 2004. The Association “Domitilla Rota Hyams ONLUS” promotes and supports the activities and initiatives of LITTLE EDEN Society, both nationally and internationally, in order to become a virtual bridge between Italy and South Africa and make people aware of the story of Domitilla and Daniel.
