Looking for Loved Ones in Haiti
Looking for loved ones who live in Haiti?
To reach or find Haitian residents, the Red Cross recommends that callers continue to call or text family members who live nearby.
Safety Check features to locate loved ones in Haiti
After Hurricane Matthew ripped through the Carribean. The Facebook feature allows people in affected areas to check-in and let their friends know that they're safe.
The aim of the Restoring Family Links website is to accelerate the process of restoring contact between separated family members. It is managed by the ICRC, in cooperation with the tracing services of the Haitian Red Cross Society and of National Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies throughout the world. At this stage, the website offers the possibility for persons in Haiti and abroad to publish the names of relatives with whom they are striving to restore contact. It will progressively incorporate information offering responses to those queries. (Note: The ICRC has no means of verifying the information sent through the network. It is not responsible for any inaccurate information given through the services made available on this site.)
Looking for US citizens in Haiti?
The State Department has also created a task force to monitor the emergency. People in the U.S. or Canada with information or inquiries about U.S. citizens in Haiti may reach the Haiti Task Force at 888-407-4747. Outside the U.S. and Canada, call 202-501-4444. Note: due to heavy volume, some callers may receive a recording.
The U.S. Embassy in Port Au Prince has set up a task force at the Embassy which is taking calls as conditions permit. The Embassy is working to identify Americans in Haiti who need urgent assistance and to identify sources of emergency help.
Americans are urged to contact the Embassy via email ASPaP@state.gov to request assistance.
Americans in Haiti can call the Embassy's Consular Task Force at 509-2229-8942, 509-2229-8089, 509-2229-8322, or 509-2229-8672.
