Working with Kenya Red Cross

Since 2011, Kenya Red Cross (KRCS) has been using the REFUNITEfamily tracing tool across Kenya to complement their traditional family tracing services. The REFUNITE free tool allows them to assist those with family tracing needs in a more efficient and effective manner for a fraction of the cost. This addition to the multitude of services that KRCS provides allows them to improve upon their services and bring greater amounts of relief to those in need.

 

 

Operations with UNHCR in East Africa

Since 2010, REFUNITE has been partnering with the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) to promote the REFUNITE family tracing tool across East Africa. UNHCR promotes our tool in various UNHCR locations in Kenya and Uganda, both in refugee settlements and UNHCR branches. Through our partnership with UNHCR in these strategic locations, we are able to reach many hundreds of beneficiaries who pass through their doors everyday and who can benefit from increased access to our family tracing tool.
