Description: A few weeks ago, Laila, a 7-year old girl, began a trip that she will remember for her entire life - the one that took her from Gaza to Paris to be reunited with her family.
Her journey involved a whirlwind of emotions: from the sadness of leaving behind her grandmother, uncles and extended family in Gaza, the fatigue of traveling more than 24 hours crossing several countries, to the sheer joy of hugging her parents and two sisters again in Paris after three years apart.
Through the Restoring Family Links program, the ICRC and National Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies work together around the world to locate people and put them back into contact with their relatives. This work includes looking for family members, restoring contact, reuniting families and seeking to clarify the fate of those who remain missing.
