The Trilogy believe in paying it forward, and Operation Bobbi Bear is their charity of choice.
Operation Bobbi Bear is a very worthy registered Non-Profit Organization which aims to rescue, represent, reintegrate and uphold the rights of sexually abused children, minimize their risk of HIV infection and help them towards wholeness. They rely solely on donations from the community and companies to enable them to continue their valuable work for sexually abused children.
Bobbi Bear is a toy that is provided as a non-threatening means for child victims of sexual abuse to communicate the nature of abuse, crossing all language barriers and preventing secondary abuse at point-of-rescue. It provides the criminal-justice system and caregiver with a better understanding of actual events and enables the initiation of appropriate HIV and Aids interventions. Because the child is using Bobbi Bear to describe what has happened, she/he does not have to relive the trauma by having to show this on his/her own body. Bobbi Bear overcomes all language barriers that could arise between a child and the police. Bobbi Bear is dated and signed by the Child Protection Unit, the Bobbi Bear Child Safety Officer and caregiver, and is then bagged and kept for the child's first appearance in court.
The organization also runs a safe house where children are cared for once they have been removed from an abusive home environment until they can be placed somewhere suitable.
If you would like to help the Operation Bobbi Bear by sponsoring a bear for R100 or making a monetary donation, this can be done at Teremok Spa or Teremok Marine receptions. We collect funds and regularly hand them over.
