Description : International Day of the Disappeared 2017.
What is it like to live with the disappearance of a loved one ? How does one learn to cope with the pain and the misery ? When does it become acceptable to let their memory fade away ?
The family members of the people who go missing live with uncertainty on a daily basis. The unexplainable absence of a loved one leads to intense suffering.
The devastated family members experience physical, emotional and, sometimes, psychosocial breakdown. Add to this considerable legal, administrative and economic difficulties and the effect is chaotic to say the least.
The ICRC conducts humanitarian work regarding missing people and their family members in various parts of the world as it believes that all people, without distinction, have the right to know the fate and whereabouts of their loved ones and to have an adequate response to the humanitarian needs resulting from their disappearance.
