Missing Children Social Campaign

On June 30th 2019, AS Roma launched a social media campaign around incoming transfer announcements aimed at raising awareness about missing children around the world.

The club initially partnered with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children in the United States and Telefono Azzurro in Italy to publicise individual cases of children who have gone missing through the club’s social media channels.

Since launching the campaign, British charity Missing People, Spanish charity SOSDesaparecidos and Kenyan charity Missing Child Kenya have partnered with Roma to use the campaign to raise awareness in the hope of locating children missing in the United Kingdom, Spain and Kenya.

These are all of the missing children who have featured in the campaign so far…

Roma’s Missing Children campaign partners

The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children: USA

Founded in 1984, The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) is a non-profit corporation whose mission is to help find missing children, reduce child sexual exploitation, and prevent child victimisation. NCMEC works with families, victims, private industry, law enforcement, and the public to assist with preventing child abductions, recovering missing children, and providing services to deter and combat child sexual exploitation.

Today, with better public awareness, training, laws, and technology, NCMEC is able to help bring more missing children home every day, including long-term missing children.

“We never forget a child and never give up hope no matter how long a child has been missing,” the NCEMC state on their website.

John Clark, chief executive and president of NCMEC, added: "We were delighted to be contacted to work with AS Roma on this project. It’s an incredible initiative and a very innovative way to help tackle a universal issue.

“The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children assists with more than 25,000 missing children cases in the United States every year. If this initiative - using the power of social media - can raise awareness about not just the missing children featured, but also the work we do year-round, in terms of raising awareness and preventative measures, then it will have been a success.

“NCMEC sees first-hand the importance of not losing hope when it comes to finding a missing child. We know that children come home after days, years, and decades of being missing. We depend on organisations like AS Roma to spread awareness and use their voice for change. We could not be prouder of AS Roma for spreading awareness on a global scale.”

Telefono Azzurro: Italy

Telefono Azzurro was founded in 1987 in Bologna by Ernesto Caffo, then associate professor of Child Neuropsychiatry at the University of Modena, to support the rights of Italian children and adolescents and help protect them from abuse and violence.

Telefono Azzurro also operates a direct line for people to call regarding missing children. In Italy, on average a child goes missing every seven days - and only 18% of those are eventually brought home.

Since its foundation Telefono Azzurro has been working 24 hours a day, seven days a week on the protection and safety of at-risk youngsters. In 2018 the organisation handled 150 reports of missing children.

“We listen to children and adolescents every day and offers concrete answers to their requests for help,” they state on their website.

Ernesto Caffo, president of Telefono Azzuro, added: “We are thankful to AS Roma for creating this opportunity to shine a light on the serious issue of missing children, a cause that too often receives little coverage in mainstream media. This important initiative is an opportunity to raise public awareness of an issue that affects so many families throughout the world, and also for different countries to come together and attempt to find common solutions to the issue, across borders.”

Missing People: UK

Launched following the high-profile disappearance of estate agent Suzy Lamplugh in London in 1986, the National Missing Persons Helpline was set up – later relaunching in 2007 as Missing People. The charity offers a lifeline to the 180,000 people who run away or go missing each year in the UK.

For those left behind, Missing People provides specialised support to ease the heartache and confusion, and help search for their missing loved ones.

“We are here to ensure that anyone who is missing can find a safe way to reconnect with a loved one, to get a message home, or, to get to a place of safety; and that families are supported whilst they live with not knowing what has happened to someone they love,” the charity states on its website. “Our mission is to be a lifeline to missing people and their families left behind, and our publicity appeals play a big part in that. We use social media to share appeals for missing people every day.”

Missing People’s CEO Jo Youle added: “AS Roma is giving us a fantastic opportunity to reach a wide audience by sharing appeals for missing children and young people with their millions of fans. More than 80,000 children are reported missing in the UK each year, with two percent, or 1,600 children and young people, remaining missing for longer than a week. Raising awareness among as many people as possible is crucial. Anything we can do to get the word out about children and young people who have disappeared is welcome.”

Missing Child Kenya: Kenya

Missing Child Kenya is a a community led portal that works with organisations and individuals in the child protection sector and with the public to help share information on missing children using various media platforms

Through their platforms, they increase search efforts at no cost to the affected families and have reunited 196 children with their families to date.

sharing photo posters and alerts to as broad an audience and in the fastest of time as possible.

The Missing Child Kenya team provides free resources for the search of missing children between the ages of 0-18 in the following ways by counselling families on ways to search for their child, creating a personalised missing poster for each child, posting the child's photo/poster on the Missing Child Kenya platforms and networks and helping families work with their community, law enforcement and the mainstream and social media.

“It takes a village to raise a child is an African proverb that means that an entire community of people must interact with children for those children to experience and grow in a safe and healthy environment,” says Maryana Munyendo, executive director of Missing Child Kenya. “Through this partnership with AS Roma, communities come together through sport and we break down barriers of geographical location, race, economic backgrounds, age and gender to come together and help reunite missing children with their families. AS Roma has a big following in Kenya and Africa and their goal was to help missing kids globally. Missing Child Kenya is proud to be the first African partner in this noble cause.

“Whether you are a concerned adult or a child, you can dial the toll free number in Kenya 0800 22 33 44 to access our services. We not only respond to the emergency needs of missing, lost and found and displaced children but also link them to services for their short and long-term care and rehabilitation.”
