We help restore contact between family members

The Bulgarian Red Cross or the ICRC helps people in Bulgaria restore and maintain contact with family members through Red Cross messages. This service is provided:

  • when loss of contact is due to armed conflict, other situations of violence, natural or man-made disasters, or migration;
  • when other means of communication (telephone lines, postal system, etc.) are disrupted or not available;

or in other situations of humanitarian need, when possible.​


Family reunification
The Bulgarian Red Cross can give advice to people who wish to be reunited with their families in Bulgaria or abroad. It can refer them to the appropriate organization or authority.

Any involvement in family reunification depends on authorization from the government authorities.​
We provide other services
The Bulgarian 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.

The Bulgarian Red Cross can forward documents submitted by other National Societies (birth, death and marriage certificates). In some cases, it can obtain such documents for Bulgarian citizens from the local authorities.

The Bulgarian Red Cross, in cooperation with the International Organization for Migration (IOM), delivers attestations for people detained during World War II.​
