Every year, hundreds of thousands of children around the world go missing or are abducted. In the UK alone, more than 140,000 children go missing every year. That is one child every five minutes. Some of these children are forcibly separated from one parent by the other; some are abused, exploited or murdered; and others simply disappear, never to be found. Action Against Abduction (formerly PACT) was created to help end this tragedy.
Action Against Abduction devotes itself to campaigning and research. We work, firstly, to raise public awareness of the tragedy of missing and abducted children; and, secondly, to change for the better policies and practices, which are meant to protect children from abduction.
Action Against Abduction has been a driving force behind major changes in the UK, France and the USA. We have published 5 major reports; several films; and raised awareness of the plight of missing and abducted children.
