On June 23rd, Fundación ANAR officially joined AMBER Alert Europe. With Fundación ANAR joining, AMBER Alert Europe now brings together 37 official organisations, public authorities, and business entities from 23 countries to aid the search for missing children in Europe.
“We are delighted to have Fundación ANAR on board”, says Frank Hoen, Chairman and Founder of AMBER Alert Europe. “I have closely followed the organisation’s hard work to improve the wellbeing of minors such as the Only for Children campaign. I am confident that with combined forces we can make Europe a safer place for our children.”
Silvia Moroder, President of Fundación ANAR: “We are really pleased to reach this collaboration agreement with AMBER Alert Europe as it represents a further step in our mission of helping missing minors and their families. We know that the phenomenon of missing children is still unknown and complex and all efforts are important. Each case is unique and singular and deserves our best attention. We are confident that this alliance will bring more effective help to our children as we strive for the same goal.”
Fundación ANAR is a non-profit organisation dedicated to promoting and defending the rights of children and adolescents, through the development of projects both in Spain and in Latin America, within the framework of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.
Since 2010, Fundación ANAR has been managing the 116 000 Hotline, the European hotline number for missing children, in Spain. This hotline provides free, immediate life-saving support when children go missing. Calls are answered locally by trained and professional staff from organisations specialising in dealing with cases of missing children by providing emotional, psychological, social, and legal advice.
