28-03-2011 Film Ref. V-F-CR-F-01085-w
Following an escalation in fighting in western Côte d'Ivoire, the Red Cross has stepped up its work to reconnect children arriving in neighbouring Liberia, who have been separated from their families. The ICRC and the Liberian National Red Cross Society has registered and assisted more than 50 unaccompanied children since the latest big influx of Ivorian refugees at the end of February. The Red Cross has provided more than 600 free phone calls and forwarded over 350 messages from the refugees to their loved ones back home.
