Family Reunification

Refugees United


Refugees United (Refunited) is a protected search engine that allows you to search for lost loved ones all over the world. Refunited has a special section for NGOs and has offices in three different countries (Kenya,  the United States and Denmark). The search engine can be used free of charge by creating a profile.

Refunited FAQ: Information on how Refugees United helps to trace loved ones and how to use the search engine: https://refunite.org/about/qa/ and https://refunite.org/technology/.

WARNING: You should not use this website if you or your family at home would be endangered if your identity is revealed. Since all refugees are fleeing persecution, this is most likely to be the case with you. There are some special instructions as to how you can use a different name and use some birth mark or other information that only the loved one that you are trying to find would know, but before using Refunite, we strongly suggest that you take advice BEFORE from the Red Cross or some legal aid office whether and how to fill the Refunite form.
