Happy Birthday, Child Focus!
Child Focus was born 20 years ago on March 31, 1998.
Over the past years, the foundation has handled no less than 67,913 cases including 21,360 fugues, 6,003 international parental abductions, 10,488 disappearances of unaccompanied foreign minors, 468 abductions by a known third and 55 abductions or attempts by an unknown third party.
In addition to the treatment of 23,767 reports of suspected child pornography, Child Focus intervened 1,380 times in cases of sexual exploitation of minors.
Today, the Belgian organisation remains vigorously active in the fight against disappearance and sexual exploitation in cooperation with the police, the judiciary and the welfare sector.
“The real challenge remains to eradicate the disappearances and the sexual exploitation in the world,” said Heidi De Pauw, Director-General for Child Focus. That explains why, in the years to come, Child Focus will focus more than ever on the prevention of these phenomena through prevention and awareness actions.
The communication agency Page in extremis wishes a happy anniversary to the Belgian association.
In 2006, Page in extremis had started to collaborate with Child Focus. During many years, the creative team developed various publications and annual reports in close collaboration with the Child Focus’ communication team, and in particular with two exceptional people, Maryse Rolland and Daniel Cornelis.
In 2012, the communication agency updated the visual identity of the association and defined with Dirk Depover, Chief Communication Officer, all the rules for using the various visual components of the Child Focus identity within the framework of a valuable and easy-to-use graphic chart.
Thus, we can say in a certain way that this long-term collaboration marked the DNA of the communication agency.
Page in extremis is very proud and honoured to had had the chance to contribute to a piece of the story of Child Focus.
Based in Brussels, the communication agency can help you define the essence of your brand and formulate its differences in a very positive relationship with its environment and all its stakeholders.
