The primary objective of the RFL program is to alleviate the suffering of families by offering a range of services aimed at tracing family members, re-establishing and sustaining communication, reuniting families, and, importantly, determining the fate and location of those who remain missing. This comprehensive program operates globally, providing support to individuals affected by various crises and conflicts.

Our Operational Information

The PRCS RFL program is carried out through a dedicated team of RFL staff, strategically positioned with four members at the headquarters and one in each of the seven provinces. Additionally, a pool of around 130 RFL trained volunteers actively contributes to the program’s success on the ground. Their collective efforts enable the program to extend its reach and impact, fostering connections between separated family members.
