Armed conflict, international disasters and migration leave millions of people around the globe in urgent need of humanitarian assistance every year. As a truly worldwide network, the volunteers of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent are able to help families reconnect.
The American Red Cross helps families separated internationally when:
- Families have been separated internationally as a result of war, disaster, migration or other humanitarian emergency.
- Families have tried normal channels of communication to the extent possible.
- The family member making the inquiry is able to provide essential information on the sought person.
- The family member making the inquiry is a relative, who had been in direct contact with the sought person before the crisis occurred.
