Red Cross's Dedication to Serving Migrants Around the World

By The American Red Cross


Everyday, individuals around the world lose contact with their loved ones as a result of conflict, disaster, or migration. Along with reconnecting separated family members around the world, Red Cross and Red Crescent Teams have helped migrants in a number of ways from providing aid through medical care and disaster relief to delivering messages of hope.


As part of the global Red Cross Red Crescent network, the American Red Cross is guided by the seven fundamental principles of humanity, impartiality, neutrality, independence, voluntary service, unity and universality. This means we provide services to people who need them in times of emergency—regardless of race, religion, gender, sexual orientation or citizenship status.


People looking for loved ones separated by international conflict, disaster, or migration can call our helpline at 844-782-9441 or visit their local Red Cross chapter.
