Red Cross Tracing Service

Library Author  Event (2)

Every year, countless families across the world are separated by conflict, disaster or migration. People suffer terribly when they lose contact with their loved ones and live with the uncertainty of not knowing where they are or whether they are safe.

From battlefields to earthquakes; from post-war migration to social upheavals, Australian Red Cross has been helping to reconnect families for more than 100 years. Together, Australian Red Cross works with the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) and National Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies to look for missing loved ones, restore contact, reunite families and clarify the fate of those who remain missing.

Woy Woy Library is hosting a presentation about this unique service. Hear the stories of those who have experienced the heartache of being separated from their loved ones and their quest to find out what happened.
