This year, the Restoring Family Links program held a photo contest to better share the reconnecting families work of the American Red Cross. These photos help tell the story of Restoring Family Links - from the day to day outreach and casework of volunteers and staff across the nation, to helping families reconnect and communicate through Red Cross Messages, to providing documentation to Iraqi refugees to help them receive reparations. While just a momentary glimpse, they also share the joy of being able to communicate with family, the relief that comes from knowing the safety and well-being of loved ones.
Thank you to everyone who participated in the contest. The photos below were selected for special recognition. As a thank you for sharing their local reconnecting families work, each chapter that submitted a winning photo will receive a framed copy. Thank you to everyone who helps support and grow the Restoring Family Links program locally and nationally. Enjoy the photos!
Every year, the American Red Cross along with other Red Cross Red Crescent Societies around the globe help reconnect thousands of families separated by conflict, disaster, migration, and other humanitarian emergencies.
