The Teddy Loving Care Scheme

The Teddy Loving Care scheme in Cyprus is a scheme where teddy bears are purchased using funds raised by charitable donations and other fundraising activities and the teddies purchased are gifted to hospitals dealing with children.

It has been found that the trauma faced by children (especially small children) both as in patients and out patients can be alleviated by the simple gift of a teddy bear.

The scheme was started in Cyprus By W.Bro Maurice Stephenson in 2006 with a successful trial at Paphos General Hospital with two boxes of Teddies purchased by the District Board of Benevolence.

The Scheme was then extended to the whole of the Republic of Cyprus and since the commencement of the project in 2006, approximately 12450 teddies have been placed in the A & E Units of the following general hospitals : Paphos, Limassol ,Larnaca, Paralimni and Makarios in Nicosia.

Over the years the project has earned the support not just of grateful parents and their children but also the hospital staff who obviously find dealing with a calmer child much better.

The responsibility of the TLC scheme has now passed to W.Bro Ray Hynes and if you wish to donate to this very worthy cause please contact Ray at [email protected]
