THE Durban South Business Forum held its annual fund-raising golf day recently, the proceeds of which went to Operation Bobbi Bear.

Bobbi Bear is a non-profit organisation and totally financially dependent on public donations, with no help from government.

It works on behalf of children who have been sexually abused, to minimise their risk of HIV infection at the point of rescue, ensure their health and well being, and bring the perpetrators to justice.

Based in Amanzimtoti, Bobbi Bear reaches out far beyond the boundaries of eThekwini.

In spite of their financial struggle, the dedication and courage of the few staff performs miracles for abused children.

In 2015 more than 20 000 children were reached in schools and communities and hundreds of children were rescued and given treatment and perpetrators brought before the courts.

Bobbi Bear has a “rescue pack” used for initial care and treatment of rescued children. It is estimated that the cost of one “rescue pack” is in the region of R200.

The R12 000 donation by DSBF to Bobbi Bear enables them to rescue 60 abused children from extreme adverse circumstances.

To contribute to this worthy cause, contact Bobbi Bear at 072 708 0095 or 072 44 2525. - Supplied.
