American Association For Lost Children (AAFLC) is an awesome and unique charity that physically finds and rescues missing children, operating on tax-deductible donations. AAFLC spends hours, days, weeks, and months conducting hands-on investigations, while traveling in and outside the country performing surveillance and undercover work searching for and rescuing missing children.

Since our beginning, AAFLC has found and rescued over 135 missing children from places like Germany, Lebanon, South Korea, Mexico and numerous cities within the United States. These missing children have endured physical, mental and emotional abuse – and in some cases sexual abuse. They need our help.
