Golfing for Missing Children Europe



 

JOIN US at the Royal Zoute Golf Club on Friday 19 May 2017

The annual charity event "Golfing for Missing Children Europe" started in 2006 and has to date attracted over 1,500 golfers to some of the most prestigious golf courses in Belgium. This event reaches high level management in private companies as well as well-known members of civil society, raising awareness of Missing Children Europe and of the risks faced by missing children.

We warmly thank the President and the members of the Royal Zoute Golf Club who generously offer their two famous courses to support the cause of missing children.

What will the money raised be used for?

Approximately 130,000 international couples file for divorce in the EU annually. Children are involved in many of these cases. When an international family conflict escalates, it could lead to a parental abduction. 37% of the cases handled by missing children hotlines across Europe deal with parental abductions.

Missing Children Europe runs the Cross-Border Family Mediators’ (CBFM), a network of 150 highly-trained bi-cultural mediators who specialise in helping parents find an agreeable solution in cases of international family conflicts. Every year, an additional number of mediators join this growing network. Missing Children Europe also provides ongoing training and supervision to its existing members.

Missing Children Europe is currently looking at the after effects of a parental abduction on a child. We know that 64% of children abducted by a parent have had no contact with the left behind parent during the entire period of the abduction. Children have said that this is a very confusing and traumatic time for them.

With more information about the impact of a parental abduction on a child, we can suggest recommendations on the best interest of the child in such situations, for example the frequency of contact with the left behind parent, the steps that might need to be taken to ensure a smooth return for the child and so on. The funds raised from the event will support such projects related to child disappearances and well being of children.
