United has developed a web platform and mobile tools that drastically
streamline the family tracing process for both NGOs and individuals.
digital infrastructure not only fosters greater collaboration and
promotes unhindered sharing of information among Family Tracing and
Reunification (FTR) agencies, but it also gives refugees the ability to
become directly involved in their search for missing family via an
anonymous, safe forum; easily accessible tools; and an ever-expanding,
user-driven family finding network.
Refugees United, a fully independent 501(c)(3)
non-profit organization, was formed in 2006. The organization was born
from the founders’ highly personal journey helping one young
Afghan refugee trace his missing family.
