Every day, people all over the world leave their homes in search for a better life. On the road or after they have arrived at their destination, many migrants go missing. It is these vulnerable migrants that the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) seeks to help.
Through the Missing and Deceased Migrants Pilot Project, the ICRC is working with South African and Zimbabwean authorities to complement existing systems, tools and resources that are used to locate missing migrants – whether they are living or deceased.
