The Smile of the Child: 4th Meeting of the SAFE project

07.03.2018 Share

The 4th meeting the EU-funded project “SAFE – Sustainable Alliance for Missing Children in Greece” was held on the 26th of February 2018 in Athens. The project is coordinated by “The Smile of the Child” and is implemented under the funding of Rights, Equality & Citizenship Programme of the European Union.

During the 4th working group, the project team reviewed the actions that have been undertaken so far (training program, training curriculum, number and profile of the participants).Then a discussion took place among the participants of the working group. The key points were:

1. The operating framework and the means that each involved organization uses in field of search for missing children.
2. The scenario and methodology for the field exercise that will be done by using the "table top exercise" methodology.
3. Organizational issues regarding the training course that will be held in Athens, Thessaloniki and Patra.

Representatives of “The Smile of the Child” and more specifically scientific staff of the Operational Center of the Organization where the European Hotline for Missing Children 116000 and the Amber Alert Hellas are activated took part in the meeting along with volunteers of the Search and Rescue Team “Thanasis Makris”, Samaritans volunteers, representatives of the Hellenic Police (Public Security and Missing Persons’ Units), Fire Brigade and Coast Guard.
