  1. How we help

The GRC Tracing Service helps in the search for relatives

The GRC Tracing Service supports people who have become separated from their family due to armed conflicts, natural disasters, escape, displacement or migration. In the search for your loved ones, we may also cooperate with the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) and the tracing services of other Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies.

The Red Cross also helps to provide certainty when the person you are looking for is presumed to have died, for example in the case of missing persons or prisoners of war. You can find more information about the humanitarian tasks of the GRC Tracing Service here:
