Do you need help reuniting with your family?

If you have a wife, husband or children under the age of 18 (or you are under the age of 18) in another country

The search service helps separated family members who have lost touch with each other during war, armed conflict and disaster. Although our support is subject to the approval of the authorities, if you fall into any of the above categories, do not hesitate to contact us (contact information is below the page) so that we can assess your case and take appropriate action. .

Do you have difficulty communicating with members of your family due to war, armed conflict or disaster? Has anyone close to you been detained (eg a prison or detention center) and you have no contact with him?

The search services of the Bulgarian Red Cross also deal with the transmission of special messages, where other methods of communication do not work (anymore). These Red Cross messages are sometimes the only way to communicate between prisoners of war, detainees and their families. If you think we can help you, please contact us via the contacts below.

In addition, we have the opportunity to provide you with a short call to your relatives, if you know their contacts, so you can exchange information and family news.

All information shared with the Bulgarian Red Cross is confidential, unless you want it to be made public to aid the search.

Please contact our services only after you have tried all other possible ways of contact.

All services we provide are free!
