Missing Children’s Month


Saskatchewan officially proclaimed May 2014 as Missing Children’s Month.  This year marks the 23rd annual Green Ribbon Campaign by Child Find Saskatchewan, which includes National Missing Children’s Day on May 25.

“Ensuring the safety and well-being of all children and youth in our province is paramount,” Social Services Minister June Draude said.  “I encourage all Saskatchewan residents to wear a Green Ribbon of Hope this month to raise awareness for all missing children and their families.”

Citizens can help support Child Find Saskatchewan by making donations to the organization’s Green Ribbon donation boxes located at Saskatchewan Liquor Board Stores across the province during the month of May.

“The Green Ribbon is a symbol of remembrance and hope for the safe return of missing children in our province and country,” Child Find Saskatchewan President Phyllis Hallat said.  “We believe that a missing child is everyone’s responsibility.”

Child Find Saskatchewan is a charitable organization that educates and advocates for the protection and rights of children and youth, and works with law enforcement agencies and other partners to help locate missing children.
