Disasters like Typhoon Haiyan wreak havoc on telecommunications systems, making it difficult for separated families to fi nd one another. Part of the Red Cross’ mission is to help families that have been separated by disaster or conflict reconnect.
The American Red Cross shelters, feeds and provides emotional support to victims of disasters; supplies about 40 percent of the nation's blood; teaches skills that save lives; provides international humanitarian aid; and supports military members and their families. The Red Cross is a not-for-profit organization that depends on volunteers and the generosity of the American public to perform its mission.
