today I come to you with sad news - Help Find My Child will be shortly
closing down. This has been a very difficult decision to take but an
unavoidable one due to changes in circumstances. Itís a situation we
never wanted to be in particularly so soon, with so much more needing to
be done for the missing and those left behind.
Help Find My Child started in a time when social media was not fully
utilized in the search for missing children, as a group before and after
charity status we pushed boundaries, using technology with online
communities to get word out when it was needed where it was needed world
wide. We are very proud in what we have achieved and have somewhat lead
the way in creating new innovative methods of spreading missing child
appeals. Since our conception we have seen some of the larger
organisations move in this direction and realise the potential for
bringing in information by engaging with the online world.
We will be closing down our pages and referring families where
appropriate to other fantastic organisations who can help in the search
for their missing loved ones. Donations we will transfer to a selected
charity with the same aims to make sure every penny is used as intended
and can help other families.
I'd like to pass on my heartfelt thanks firstly to co directors Emma and
Helen who have been outstanding in their support, loyalty, dedication
and have worked tirelessly for HFMC. Our joint thanks and admiration
goes out to our volunteers and supporters.
Our thoughts and prayers are forever with families and the wider missing
