Another McCann support group

Forever Searching is, according to it's own description, a “a global group whose whole purpose for existing is to raise awareness to individual child abductions throughout the world. Thanks to the power of the internet, and to the sheer determination and passion of the group members, who have come together from many different parts of the world. 'Forever Searching' are able to target several countries simultaneously with their ongoing awareness campaign.”
But this is a curious statement: “Since news of Madeleine McCann’s abduction in Portugal in May 2007, group members have worked tirelessly, distributing thousands of posters displaying 4 year old Madeleine’s face throughout the world. This story set off a chain reaction as members of 'Forever Searching' became aware of other missing and forgotten children, and they set about raising awareness for all of them.”
So, only after starting to campaign for Madeleine McCann they found that there are other cases of missing children in the world?

no to me it sounds like they are saying that due to Madeleines case, it raised awareness of other children,. I dont think it is meant to imply they didnt know there were other missing children until then.
I mean you would have to live under a rock to not be aware that children are kidnapped, abducted, stolen,abused. It is a sickening thing, and very heartbreaking.
I dont begrudge Madeleine for getting such preferential treatment, it isnt her fault,but for all the other missing children that never get their pictures in the paper, it does make me sad. Every childs life is pricess.Their precious innocence is a gift that no one has the right to steal from them.
very sad indeed, all this time and it is as if she...vaished in thin air.
Where is she?
