Bobbi Bear Panty Campaign

Bobbi Bear Panty Campaign

Personal message

My name is Natalie. I live in Amanzimtoti South Africa. I am raising funds for Operation Bobbi Bear who are a "Human Rights Organisation committed to helping sexually abused children" in our community.  This organisation is incredibly important to the victims of abuse which is why it is so important to me.  Bobbi Bear rescues and provides safe homes for abused children. They also work with the criminal justice system to prosecute perpetrators, giving the victims of this horrendous abuse a voice and so much more. 

Approximately 530 child rapes take place every day in South Africa. This equates to 1 child being raped every 3 minutes. Following a rape, Bobbi Bear is called in to assist the victim of assault &/or raped. Every Child at risk is supplied with a rape bag which contains various medical supplies, therapy items, and panties or underpants as their clothes are removed and sent for forensic testing. Once they have had the rape examination they need to be given clean clothes and a clean pair of panties or underpants.  This is all funded by the community at large.  I am hoping that this platform will help me raise funds to pay for the panties needed for the rape bags.

As this is an everyday need there is no timeline per se, but every rand raised is one rand more Operation Bobbi Bear can use to fund their other programmes. I am praying my Panty campaign will raise enough funds to buy enough stock for at least a year.  All funds will go directly to Operation Bobbi Bear where they will then be used to purchase the panties and underpants for their rape bags.

Operation Bobbi Bear

Operation Bobbi Bear Logo

Operation Bobbi Bear is a human rights organisation committed to helping sexually abused children in Amanzimtoti, Kwa Zulu Natal, South Africa.

A “Bobbi Bear” is a non-threatening means (toy) for child victims of sexual abuse to communicate the nature of the abuse, crossing all language barriers and preventing secondary abuse at the point of rescue.

It provides a better understanding of actual events and enables the initiation of appropriate HIV and AIDS interventions.

Our success rate is a testament to our organization’s training programmes. We rescue and provide safe homes for abused children, work with the criminal justice system to prosecute perpetrators, educate individuals and communities, and much, much more.
