Red Cross presentation at library
Woy Woy Library will host a Red Cross Services presentation from 2:30pm on June 20.
The presentation will outline how the Red Cross reconnects families separated by war, disaster and upheaval.
"Every year, countless families across the world are separated by conflict, disaster or migration," said Central Coast Council administrator Mr Ian Reynolds.
"People suffer terribly when they lose contact with their loved ones and live with the uncertainty of not knowing where they are or whether they are safe.
"From battlefields to earthquakes; from post-war migration to social upheavals, Australian Red Cross has been helping to reconnect families for more than 100 years.
"Australian Red Cross works with the International Committee of the Red Cross and national Red Cross and Red Crescent societies to look for missing loved ones, restore contact, reunite families and clarify the fate of those who remain missing."
