Families can be separated as a result of war, armed conflict, disaster and migration. Red Cross around the world aims to reconnect disrupted family links by looking for family members, restoring contact, reuniting families and clarifying the fate of missing loved ones.
If you are interested in this International Tracing Service or you would like to learn more about it, a free information session about tracing by the Australian Red Cross will be held on Thursday, 23 March 11am to midday at Hawkesbury Central Library at the Tebbutt Room, Deerubbin Centre, 300 George Street, Windsor.
The session will outline how they find family members and restore contact as well as provide some insight into the importance of such a service.
Bookings are essential via www.hawkesburylibrary.eventbrite.com or call (02) 4560 4460.
