Red Cross Reconnects Brother and Sister from Somalia

Video by Kelly Wheeler, Colorado Wyoming Region, Communications Volunteer

Robbe Sokolove has been volunteering with the Red Cross chapter in Denver for three years now. A part of her work with the International Services department there includes Restoring Family Links. This program helps families separated by conflict, disaster, migration, or other humanitarian emergencies reconnect through tracing and messaging services. In the video below, Robbe shares the story of a brother and sister who were separated by the conflict in Somalia as children, and now, are able to communicate with one another through Red Cross Messages.
