Reuniting families torn apart by conflict

Reuniting families torn apart by conflict

In war zones around the world, thousands of children have been separated from their families.

This year alone, thousands of families have been ripped apart by escalating violence in war torn countries like Syria, Iraq, South Sudan and Nigeria.

We work with colleagues from the Red Cross around the world to find missing relatives and reunite them with their families – wherever they are.

With your help, there is so much more we can do.

"I don't know what the future holds, but here we are safe. Without the help of the ICRC, I wouldn't be with my children today."

When Marwa was separated from her two young children last year, her life fell apart. After 10 months apart, we were able to trace Marwa's children and reunite them with their mother, thanks to your help.
