I AM IN GREECE AND I HAVE LOST CONTACT WITH A FAMILY MEMBER. WHAT CAN I DO?

 

The Hellenic Red Cross can help you, if you are in Greece and you have lost contact with family members due to armed conflict, migration or natural or man-made disasters. It doesn't matter if your family member was lost in Greece or in another country, they will assist you in looking for your family member. To help, you should bring recent photos of the missing family member and also the details of any ID documents that you have for them. The Red Cross will also want to know where and when they were last seen.
