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.
Last May, more than 200 prestigious clubs massively shared notices of disappearance on social networks. A look back at an unprecedented operation.
Today is the International Day for the Prevention of Child Abuse. It is an opportunity to recall that this scourge is very often the vector of disappearances.
In 2019, the Federal Office of Justice (OFJ) registered 71 requests regarding parental abductions originating in Switzerland.
