There are so many ills in the world, but one of the most disgusting and unnerving ills has to be having older people who feel no remorse for violating a little child who cannot stand up for themselves. A child. 

Our own country's teenage pregnancy rate sits at an alarming rate, with Gauteng recording more than 23,000 teenage pregnancies between April 2020 and March 2021. It can surely not be consented sex as these are minors between the ages of 10 and 19. How do you consent?

Fortunately, organisations like Operation Bobbi Bear exist to take children in unsafe homes and spaces and get them the justice they deserve. They are based in Amanzimototi and primarily work to help sexually abused children. 

On Monday she made her way to our studio to share everything one would need to know about the organisation and what help they need to keep their doors open.

Take a listen as the CEO, Eureka Olivier, thoroughly shares the purpose of their establishment:

She further continued to describe the dire situation the organisation faces because of COVID-19 and the KZN unrest. Through The Big Favour, she hoped that someone or some organisation would be able to help the with a donation for the daily proceedings at Operation Bobbi Bear. 

Take a listen:

The non-profit organisation has been operating for almost 22 years without any government funding. Every bit of financial support they have received was solely from businesses that donated. 

Unfortunately, COVID-19 hit the world and most business operations took a major knock. This directly affected Bobbi Bear. The year 2021 begun and it looked like things would pick up, but our KZN province experienced the unrest which saw multiple local businesses burn to ashes. Now, they hit a hard rock bottom following those events.

To say we are elated and relieved on their behalf is an understatement. When Jeandie from Workforce Staffing shared the news on Tuesday, the look on Eureka's face was absolutely touching. You could tell how much relief this brought to her, their staff of 22, and, most importantly, the children.  

And now this amazing contribution from Worldwide Staffing puts them at a whopping R100,000! 

This is definitely a highlight moment for The Big Favour, a meaningful contribution to such an important community organisation.
