A family reconnected.

Based on a true story.

Since 1914, the Australian Red Cross International Tracing Service has worked to reconnect families from around the world who have been separated by war, armed conflict, disaster (natural or man-made) and migration. A Family Reconnected tells the story of just one family we have helped to bring back together.
