Spread the spirit of Christmas to all your loved ones with Missing Children Europe’s e-cards
Every year, Missing Children Europe ask children and artists to design some Christmas e-cards for you! This year, the raised funds will help us actively support the coordination of the 116000 European hotlines for missing children, available 24/7 in 31 European countries
Children continue to go missing despite lockdowns…
Second wave of COVID-19 exacerbate the difficulties of the children for whom we are working. Hotline operators agreed that lockdowns do not prevent children from running away. Isolation measures and lack of access to psychosocial services increase the risk of running away for children living in institutions and children in families with pre-existing elements of violence. Therefore, supporting the 116000 missing children hotline services is crucial to ensure that all children have access to emotional, psychological, and legal support.

What will the money raised will be used for?
From 10 November until 23 December 2020, we aim to raise money to support the coordination of the 160000 European hotlines by sustaining hotline customer relationship management systems, and therefore, collect and exchange all necessary information about missing children cases to support children and their families.
The 116000 missing children hotline services, available 24/7 in 31 European countries, play a crucial role in ensuring that all children, and their parents, have access to emotional, psychological, and legal support. Nevertheless, 60% of hotlines who received funding from local and national authorities reported that the funding was not sufficient to ensure delivery of the expected standard of services.
