Is a foundation that focuses its efforts on the issue of missing minors throughout Switzerland.
Its services are entirely free of charge and are available to anyone living in Switzerland, regardless of social class or status. Missing Children Switzerland provides support to families in the various stages following the disappearance of a child and works upstream through lobbying to improve prevention based on the International Convention on the Rights of the Child, ratified by Switzerland in 1997.
It is a non-governmental foundation, recognised as of public interest.
Parental abductions are often given little consideration and are subject to a surprising silence from the authorities. Yet parental abduction is an abduction.
The very first friendly voices you hear if you have to call 116 000 are the our "Hotline Pilots".
Missing Children Switzerland received a delegation of eight people from the Federal Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA).
