Photo Slideshow: Families of the Missing

People affected by armed conflict or other violence have many needs--food, shelter, access to clean water and healthcare. But one need that is often overlooked is the need to know their family is okay. When people disappear in connection with armed conflict or other violence, their relatives endure terrible suffering as they struggle to find out what happened. The ICRC works with families of the missing to help determine the fate of their loved one and reconnect separated family members when possible.
