This February, Deliveroo is proud to be partnering with Child Focus to help bring six missing children home to their loved ones. We're putting the faces of six missing children and young adults on the delivery bags of almost 100 Deliveroo riders across Brussels to help raise awareness of individuals who are missing across Belgium.
With this initiative, Child Focus hopes to find the missing children. According to Heidi De Pauw, general director at Child Focus; "We start with the principle that someone, somewhere, knows what happened with a child that has been missing for so long". We couldn't agree more and hope that this action will convince those people to come forward with information and release parents from the fearful waiting time they experience.
Deliveroo riders are a consistent presence on our streets, and by providing more visibility for individuals who are missing, the volunteering riders can play an even more important role in their local areas and help make a real difference to the communities in which they live and work.
The poster campaign is being run in Brussels only but you can still help out. Go and like the Child Focus page. If a child goes missing or is believed to be in immediate risk you'll receive a notification. Every second count, every pair of eyes helps - your support is vital. Just like this video below shows, sometimes you are closer to a missing person than you think.
