WORLD Health Day was recently celebrated, and Hirsch’s Springfield was at the forefront, with a special visit to Bobbi Bear in Amanzimtoti, to provide healthy foods and activity toys for the children.

Bobbi Bear is a Human Rights Organization committed and dedicated to working with and assisting sexually abused children in Amanzimtoti, who rely heavily on public support to aid it in helping children in the community.

“Hirsch’s love is to give back to the community and bring a smile to everyone’s faces, and this was no exception,” said PRO Bianca Hauser.

“Everyone deserves the ‘Disney Experience’, including these children, they have gone through so much hurt and pain, so we decided to take food and toys, a little something to bring a smile to their faces,” she said.

World Health Day is a global health awareness day, which is celebrated every year on 7 April. Hirsch’s Springfield felt that health is not just about food they eat, it is also about the physical activity they take part in.

“It is important to make children aware of the benefits of keeping active from a young age, which can help to prevent many health risks later on in their lives,” said Rowan Chetty, Hirsch’s employee.

“It was so heartbreaking, but we are glad to have made a difference to these children’s lives. I really encourage the Amanzimtoti community to get involved and help Bobbi Bear where they can, no matter how small the donation, every bit helps,” added Hauser.

Eureka Olivier gave a special thank you to employees of Hirsch’s Springfield and showed them around the premises.
