Chris' Story
2 years ago in Nigeria there was a little boy named Michael. He was getting sick from a disease called leprosy.
His mom died giving birth and he has never seen his dad
The boy was 6 year old when the Red Cross helped him. He was living with his grandma who was 75 years old and she was sick with lepersy
When the Red Cross came and saw Michael they rushed him to the nearest hospital. The Red Cross helped him get better and gave his family a year supplies of food as well as an oppourtunity to go to school
Michael and his brother are all healthy and well educated now.
Obinna's Story
Is the Red Cross usually what you think?
The Canadian Red Cross Restoring Family Links program helps re-establish
contact with immediate family members after seperation due to :
War
Internal conflict
Natural Disasters
Humanitarium Crises
Kees Vanderheyden reunited with his "little sister", Traudi.
After ww2 the Netherlands Red Cross set up a program that allowed 30000 children to find refuge with host families. Kees' family was one of the families
In 1948 the Vanderheyden family welcomed Traudi, a German
child at the age of 8. Kees was 15 years old at the
time. The family's separation from Traudi was in 1954
because the Vanderheydens were immigrating to canada.
Decades later, a war in Bosnia reminds Kees of Traudin. He was then
overcome by an intense need to find her. He contacted different Red Crosses.
Until in 2000 when he found information that would accelerate the process.
Key services offered
by the Restoring family links
program include the tracing service. In 2004
Kees found Traudi through the Austrian Red
Cross using the Canadian Red Cross to bring her back.
