The Irish Red Cross is assisting members of Ireland’s Filipino diaspora to find missing family members following the massive destruction caused by Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines. The charity is working closely with the Philippine Red Cross as they work to reach areas of the country isolated by the storm.
Red Cross assessment and rescue team have been deployed to the areas affected by Typhoon Haiyan to evaluate the damage and to support rescue efforts. Welfare desks incorporating Restoring Family Links and tracing services have been established in the affected areas and are working with Red Cross national societies like the Irish Red Cross to bring news to family overseas.
To contact the Irish Red Cross Restoring Family Links services please firstname.lastname@example.org or call (01) 6424600.
The Irish Red Cross Restoring Family Links service helps people in Ireland to re-establish contact with immediate family members after separation due to armed conflict, political upheaval, natural disaster, migration and other humanitarian crises.
