Restoring Family Links in China

 
How the Family Links Network of the Red Cross / Red Crescent Movement can help you look for a family member or restore contact with a family member ​​
We help you to look for family members in China

​The Red Cross Society of China helps people look for family members in China.

We try to help you when you have lost contact due to: 

  • natural or man-made disasters;
  • armed conflict or other situations of violence;
  • migration (international cases);

or in other situations of humanitarian need, when possible.

We help you look for family members in another country

The Red Cross Society of China, together with the ICRC and National Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies abroad, helps people in China look for family members in another country. 

We try to help you when you have lost contact due to: 

  • natural or man-made disasters;
  • armed conflict or other situations of violence;
  • migration;

or in other situations of humanitarian need, when possible.


We help restore contact between family members

The Red Cross Society of China helps people restore and maintain contact with family members in China 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; 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.​

Family reunification
The Red Cross Society of China cannot help people living in China be reunited with their families in China or abroad.

Any involvement in family reunification depends on the authorisation of governmental authorities: The Ministry of Civil Affairs, The Ministry of Public Security.​
