Talk, awareness in schools about missing persons
Within the activities that sosdesaparecidos will engage in, in order to raise awareness about the LOST2 project, sosdesaparecidos was invited to the Juan XXIII school in Santander, delivering a talk on the predicament of missing people, and to raise awareness on the difficulties their families go through, and the resources that are mobilized to search for a missing person.
Nerea Cachorro, our coordinator also spoke about the importance of the LOST2 project, financed by Erasmus +, in order to train and be more ready with the needed knowledge required to help the families, law enforcement and associations/NGOs.
The association was backed up by the work done by the Real Cuerpo de Bomberos Voluntarios de Santander (Royal Brigade of Volunteer Firefighters of Santander), Valeria, with her dog Enzo, explained how she mobilizes and how a search and rescue operation takes place with search dogs, Iván González and Diego González from Protección Civil (Civil Defense) at Corvera de Toranzo, explained what ground and air bound means are involved when a disappearance alert is activated and how to psychologically help a family.
75 people attended the talk along with teachers. We would like to thank Rocío and the Juan XXIII school for the chance of raising visibility among the young about the reality of disappearances. We were given projects, from the student’s woodwork and literature workshops, that were handmade by them in an environmentally friendly fashion, to our highest satisfaction, as we also share their ecological values and aim to have LOST2 be a vehicle for respecting the environment and a reduction of the carbon footprint in our talks and trips.
