Are you looking for a family member?

On whatever page you are in the website, you will see a field asking: "Are you looking for a family member?" Underneath you are asked:

  • "Where are you now?" - you can select the country where you are.
  • "Where do you think your family member is?" - you can select the country, where your family member might be.

When you then click on "REQUEST INFORMATION" the website will display a page where you find the description of the services available in the country where you are helping you to look for your family member, with the contact details of the National Red Cross or Red Crescent Society, and the ICRC, if it is operational in that country.

Further down on the same page, you can click on > "Who will look for your family member.." in the country where your family member might be, and you will find additional information on the services available in that country.
