You are searching for your family

The Red Cross helps you in your search for family members. The Red Cross cooperates with other Red Cross and Red Crescent associations worldwide, and with special representatives in conflict zones.

The Red Cross's 'Restoring Family Links' service helps you find family members after migration, armed conflict, natural disaster or humanitarian disaster. The service is free of charge.

Restoring family links helps you:

  • search for missing family members
  • re-establish contact with family members

Contact family in a conflict zone

In conflict or disaster zones, communication channels such as telephone, mail and the Internet are usually inoperative. Via Red Cross messages, the Red Cross helps re-establish contact between the affected area and the outside world.
