In Fiji, natural disasters, such as tropical disasters occur regularly, and may lead to family contacts to be lost.
Telecommunications may be down, power cuts may prevent people from recharging their mobile phones, people may evacuate without having had a chance to inform their loved ones, and others may be injured and taken to hospitals without their relatives being aware.
There are other situations, which may result in people in Fiji losing contact with their loved ones, who may be in Fiji or abroad and find themselves in a situation that does not allow them to contact with their loved ones back home. If you lost contact with a loved one due to a humanitarian situation, you can contact either the nearest branch of the Fiji Red Cross Society or the team responsible for Restoring Family Links at the Headquarters in Suva. The Red Cross staff will try to help you restore contact if your situation falls within the established criteria.
This service is confidential and free of charge.
ARE YOU LOOKING FOR A FAMILY MEMBER?
FIJI RED CROSS CAN HELP YOU
Every year, tens and thousands of family members are separated by armed conflicts, natural disasters and migration all around the world. People suffer terribly when they lose contact with their loved ones and don’t know where they are, or whether they are safe.
The Family Links Network of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement helps to prevent separation, tries to locate separated people, restore family contact, reunite families and seeks to clarify the fate of those who remain missing.
The Fiji Red Cross Society is part of the Family Links network, alongside its partner National Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies around the world and the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC)
