Helping families trace and find missing loved ones.
Have you been separated from family by war, disaster or migration? Red Cross might be able to help you.
Australian Red Cross is part of the global Restoring Family Links network.
We can help:
find a family member missing as a result of war, disaster or migration
send a message to a relative where there is no formal means of communication
check the welfare of a relative overseas whom you are unable to reach due to illness or other circumstances
by providing you with a confirmation of detention if the International Committee of the Red Cross visited you in detention overseas.
Our service is free of charge and confidential.
Red Cross cannot accept requests when there is not enough information to conduct a search, when it is for genealogical research or relates to legal matters like wills and child custody.
