We will mourn, but we will also CELEBRATE survival

RISE International is holding a worldwide memorial day on August 10, 2008 to commemorate the deaths of children and adults born and/or raised in cults. ‘The Lost Children’ memorial will be held to remember the many second and even third generation children born and/or raised in cults whose lives were cut short through suicide, physical/mental abuse, medical neglect, drug overdose, murder and cultic fighting groups such as the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA) in Northern Uganda. RISE International and Safe Passage Foundation are working together to organize this event, which will be held in London (UK), Huntington Beach (California, USA) and Gulu (Uganda).

Memorial website: A website has been created to honor the memory of the Lost Children: http://memorial.riseinternationalcic.org. It is still under development and we need your help to improve it. If you have a deceased friend, relative or loved born or raised in a cult whom you would like remembered here, please let us know. You can email us: memorial@riseinternationalcic.org their information or create an account to enter it yourself. Multimedia content such as images, video and audio can also be added. We are also actively seeking volunteers to help with various tasks including adding content, completing data collection, research and fact checking. Please let us know if any information we have listed is incorrect or incomplete and we will make sure it is corrected or updated as soon as possible. If you need help or have a question about the memorial site, please post it in the RISE International forum.

The Lost Children memorial day will also celebrate our achievements as survivors. A yearly Outstanding Survivor Award will be presented during the event. If you know someone who you feel deserves recognition you can nominate them on the website.
