or in other situations of humanitarian need, when possible.

We help to restore contacts between family members
The Austrian Red Cross helps people in Austria restore and maintain contact with family members living in another country through Red Cross messages. This service is provided:
  • when loss of contact is due to an armed conflict, other situations of violence, natural or man-made disasters, or migration; and
  • when other means of communication (telephone lines, postal system, etc.) are disrupted or not available;
or in other situations of humanitarian need, when possible.

We help to reunite families
The Austrian Red Cross helps reunite people with their families in Austria if this is possible. We try to help families that have been granted asylum or subsidiary protection by the Austrian authorities.

Any involvement in family reunification depends on authorization from the government authorities.

We provide other services
The Austrian Red Cross can try to find information for people who are worried about the health and well-being of a close family member with whom they have suddenly lost contact. In particular, we try to find information about people with physical or mental illnesses.
