A Life on Hold: Addressing the needs of families of the missing


Disappearances are a reality. They happen for different reasons: during war, when people migrate, due to natural or man-made disasters... For the families of the disappeared, the anguish and uncertainty is the same.
In this video, the ICRC meets three persons from different corners of the globe, each with a unique story about someone close who has gone missing – a man in Uganda searching for his son and two women, one in Mexico and one in Georgia, are both looking for their brothers. Through their eyes we see the emotional, economical, and social impact that this situation has on their lives.

Are you looking for a family member?
