RENATE member Natalja Kurčinskaja sends us news of events planned by the Missing Persons’ Families Support Centre, Vilnius, in honour of all the children recorded as Missing in Lithuania.
Beginning on 24 May with a roll-call preceding the Plenary session in the Republic of Lithuania Parliament, the Missing Persons’ Families Support Centre will hold a series of public awareness-raising events at the specially commissioned sculpture for Missing Children in the square of the Lithuanian Children and Youth Centre at Konstitucijos pr. 25, Vilnius. The day’s events will conclude with creative sessions for children and a musical programme at the Missing Persons’ Families Support Centre in Vilnius.
Every year, the number of missing children increases, with many children recorded as being trafficked. The Lithuanian official records in 2014/2015 indicate 1,448 missing children but it is believed that number is much higher, unofficially.
