Working with Red Cross and Red Crescent colleagues from around the world, we reunite loved ones that have been separated, no matter where they are.

“Even when I am sleeping, I am always thinking of my children and wondering where they are. Even when I am eating, I imagine them sitting next to me and eating with me. My dreams are like a series.”
Rohiga was recently reunited with her two sons Abuali and Muhammed, in Maiduguri, Nigeria. Her three daughters are still missing.

The boys, aged 8 and 9, were studying at a school far from home when it was attacked. They fled and survived on the streets for 2 years before they were taken in and registered with the ICRC’s tracing program. They were finally reunited with their parents in 2017. But the whereabouts of their 3 sisters, who were studying at the same school, are unknown. It has been 7 years.
