RTS la 1ère devoted a special programme to Separated Children on January 18 on "Hautes Fréquences". Two stories of interest were portrayed. The first highlighted a center for young migrants in Sicily, the second focused on a teacher’s initiative to help separated children in the canton of Vaud and heard from a young migrant living in Lausanne.
