The Red Cross opened its tracing people service in Ukraine today to reach as many people as possible in the area to see if they are OK, as humanitarian aid in Ukraine raises. 

The service has been open 24/7 to different areas in conflict, and it has worked in areas difficult to reach, such as Syria and Afghanistan.

If you need assistance on this service, please call the Australian Red Cross RFL hotline on 1800 875 199, and Australians can donate to the Red Cross’ Appeal fund for Ukraine.
