Cooperation to find missing children in Belgium
Child Focus is a foundation working to find missing children and protect abused children. The Belgian organization was founded in 1996 on the initiative of Jean-Denis Lejeune, one year after the disappearance of his own daughter, and is a member of Missing Children Europe, a federation of over 30 member organizations in 26 countries across Europe.
Security officers watch for missing children
Child Focus also informs the public of missing children and this is where Securitas plays an important role. Our security officers receive information about missing children, and watch for them during their working hours to help find them. If a security officer comes across someone who looks like one of the children, he or she informs Securitas Care Center. The Care Center, which is the contact point between Securitas and Child Focus, in turn alerts Child Focus so that they can take quick action.
Each year, Child Focus launches a new campaign to create awareness about their work. Securitas helps by distributing posters and other material.
