The Rare Bear Project is a joint initiative between Rare Diseases South Africa and KyaKids, a community project run by Bryanston Bible Church.
The ladies from the Kya Sands community wanted to learn to crochet and KyaKids offered a skills clinic – thus the rare bears came into being. These ladies give each bear a unique touch by choosing their favourite colours and features.
The rare bears are given to those living with a rare disease/condition.
