“One Wish” How the Red Cross helps reconnect missing family members

The three short words "I am alive" may be all that is needed to ease the minds of distraught loved ones half a globe away. As the world’s largest humanitarian network, Red Cross and Red Crescent teams help reconnect families separated by international crises.

Mark was born in Vietnam, but was separated from his family and hadn't known their whereabouts for more than 47 years. The Red Cross helped reconnect them. If you've been separated from loved ones due to war, conflict, disaster, or migration, we may be able to help you too.
