How Farhad found his family with Trace the Face

Twenty-six-year-old Farhad contacted the GRC Tracing Service in Berlin. He had lost touch with his family while fleeing to Germany from Afghanistan. Around one month after publishing his photo on the Red Cross Trace the Face website, he was finally able to speak to his family over the phone.

Farhad told the Tracing Service his story.

Both the new GRC “SET AN EXAMPLE” campaign and a new version of the website www.drk.de have been launched successfully. As a key mission of the German Red Cross, the Tracing Service features heavily in both.
