Red Cross Aids Families to Find Love Ones in Haiti

The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) has set up a special website to help thousands of people within Haiti and abroad who have lost contact with their loved ones.

“The aim of the Family Links website is to accelerate the process of restoring contact between separated family members,” explained Robert Zimmerman, deputy head of the ICRC’s Central Tracing Agency and Protection Division. “At this stage, the website allows people in Haiti and abroad to register the names of relatives with whom they want to restore contact. It will incorporate responses to those queries as they become available.”
