THE Fiji Football Association has joined over 200 other clubs across the globe to mark International Missing Children’s Day.

Fiji FA president Rajesh Patel said already, over 200 clubs had offered to take part in the ‘Football Cares’ campaign and Fiji Football was extremely proud to collaborate with the global football community to show that football cares for everyone.

“I urge our players, officials and fans to report and support any missing child to the authorities.

“For families, just to know that people care makes a difference.

“We would love our district clubs to get involved in time to appeal for missing children and assist the families in getting the loved ones together.

“We are very proud to be joining the global football community in supporting this campaign,” said Patel.

Meanwhile, Patel added that the future of any country lies in the hands of our children, neglecting such issues like child abduction was a threat to the future of our nation.

The International Missing Children’s Day is marked on May 25 every year around the world.
