BIKERS AGAINST CHILD ABUSE

Wrapped in their leather jackets, with their hair and beards unkempt, the numerous tattoos and the proud gaze seem rough men, at times threatening: instead, under that tough aspect, a heart and a passion are hidden that beat at the unison with their engines when it comes to defending a minor from abuse. The non-profit association was founded in 1995 in the US, in the State of Utah, with the aim of eradicating the scourge of violence and mistreatment of children through an activity of support, comfort and the fight against fear. Its founder is called Chief, biker and psychologist, with a troubled childhood, specializing in assisting minors between the ages of 3 and 12. His is a story of extraordinary intuition: dealing with the case of a particularly introverted child, Chief introduces himself to him one day on his motorcycle and invites him for a ride. The initiative has a positive effect: the child is immediately attracted to the vehicle, by the sense of freedom that emanates and that one feels when traveling without a destination. Since then, it begins to open up.
Today B.A.C.A has grown, it has about 5 thousand members scattered throughout the United States, Australia, Canada and Europe.

    It seems to be very interesting. In a difficult case. Up to this moment, i have not seen such a group here in Greece. Unfortunately.
    Good night Fairy Queen.

    I was an abused child and no one ever saved me. I hope you do good work.

    My abuse started as a child when I was 4 and I don’t know when it ended because my mind drowned everything in the darkness of memory. Sure it was someone close to my family, an uncle maybe or a friend, but that was very destructive to me. I have had a lot of nightmares and even though I have been doing psychotherapy for many years I can say that I am still alive thanks to art and writing.
