People Think All Bikers Only Ride For Fun, But These Bikers Ride For Protecting Abused Children

A case of ‘never judge a book by its cover’ if ever there was one – this group of bikers don’t just enjoy riding their bikes around town but they use their sense of community to do selfless, empowering acts for those less fortunate.

    An Unlikely Source Of Support

    The Bikers Against Child Abuse or B.A.C.A, aim to help victims of child abuse deal with the terrible ramifications they face from sexual and physical abuse. Some of them have been past victims themselves giving a sense of understanding and empathy towards their new friends.

    And there’s nothing they won’t do – from supporting the child at court appearances and forming a human shield against their abuser, to hanging out and being a source of stability to a child’s life.

      Number 1 Aim: To Make The Child Feel Safe And Secure

      The guys from the international non-profit organisation will walk a child to and from bus stops, ring them up for chats, let them put stickers all over their bikes, play with Barbies and paint butterflies on their faces – there’s nothing these bikers won’t do to give a chance to let a child feel happy and safe.

      Their court appearances are the most notable with up to 30 or 40 of the bikers at a time sitting along with the frightened and intimidated child before testifying against their abuser – the ultimate encouragement and support.

        They Love It Too!

        These guys are truly an inspiration to us all. Although considered the ultimate altruistic act, seeing the difference it makes to the well-being of the kids, I think they love what they do too.

        “The kid looks at us, concentrates on us, knows we’re there for them.”
