Refunite (Connecting Families)

Long Business Description:

Everyone has the right to know where their family is. REFUNITE is a mobile family tracing tool for refugees and displaced persons.

REFUNITE’s long-standing partnerships with Ericsson, various mobile network operators, and the United Nations, have allowed us to collaborate on the pervasive problem of family separation among forcibly displaced populations, to witness the effects of these separations, and to refine our approach to reconnect loved ones. Through these partnerships, REFUNITE has set out to change the process of family tracing. By creating a user friendly, online global database of over 600,000 profiles, users can now search for their missing loved ones with the click of a button.

REFUNITE is a non-profit, non-political, non-religious and 100 % independent organization.

REFUNITE does not offer physical reunification, but the tracing program enables anyone to begin their search for people they have lost contact with.
