Did You Know {205} ~ How Many Children Go Missing Every Year?

More than 1 million children are reported missing every year worldwide.

How would you define a “missing child”?
The answer might be more complex than you realize. ICMEC considers any child under the age of 18 whose whereabouts are unknown to be “missing”. This includes children who have been abducted, abandoned, separated from their parents, or are running away from a home that is not safe. We believe every child deserves to be in the safety and security of a caring adult and when they are missing – no matter the circumstances – they are profoundly vulnerable.

      1. It’s much easier for the masses to obsess over manufactured crises like Ukraine or COVID-19, which were all much worse than they have to be on account of meddling politicians. Probably the media doesn’t want to cover real problems because a lot of moguls, magnates and manipulators have got their fingers in the pot. But I won’t get too political, it’d harsh everybody’s mellow.
