Teddy Bear Program
Meet our Teddy Bears - we call Trauma bears, they are used in times of stress and crisis. Woodend Lions Club supply them to local paramedics and other emergency officers to pass on to our younger members of society. These children may have been the victims of crime, injured in an accident or be in a traumatic situation and looking for comfort. We all know how a cuddle can offer so much comfort.
The program has been running for 15 years now and was started by a Victorian Lions Club after seeing a similar program during a visit to the USA. The Doutta Galla Lions member, being a police officer himself, he was very conscious of how desperately such a scheme was needed in Australia. Our current model remains very similar to the US program although we endeavour to include not only the Police. but other Emergency Services as well. The Lions Club adopted Operation Teddy Bear as one of their State Projects in 1989 and has been the proud facilitator ever since.
The program is a most worthy cause and greatly assists the people in the organizations that deal with very traumatic situations every day of their life.
