Red Cross Family Links

The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) has launched a Family Links Web site to help people in Haiti and other countries register the names of relatives with whom they are trying to restore contact lost as a result of the earthquake. The ICRC will progressively incorporate information offering responses to those queries. Persons seeking news from their loved ones should register the names of the people they are trying to find directly on the site at: http://www.icrc.org/familylinks.
