November 6, 2013

HAVANA, Cuba - Experts from Central America and the Caribbean, USA, Canada, Mexico and Cuba will participate in the International Red Cross Regional Meeting of Restoring Family Links Services and Searches that will be held for the first time in Cuba.

At the Hotel Nacional de Cuba, the event will run from November 7 through the 9 and will be attended by representatives of national societies, regional delegations of Mexico and the United States, and members of that body, with headquarters in Geneva.
Sponsored by the International Committee of the Red Cross, the event aims to analyze the new challenges of this humanitarian service in the face of changing world situations, Susana Llovet, director of the Office of Restoring Family Links Services and Searches of the Cuban National Society Red Cross, told ACN news agency.
In this regard, she referred to the serious effects that armed conflict, situations of violence, natural disasters and displacement of people for political, economic, social and environmental problems cause.
The expert said that these complications increase and lead to humanitarian consequences, including the dispersion of the family, problems of immigrants, non-acceptance of the host countries and territories, xenophobia, racism and discrimination.
The Cuban Red Cross was established in 1909, when that service also emerged, which has its development since 1995 and has a national network, in provinces as well as in municipalities, Dr. Maria de los Angeles de Varona, a member of the organizing committee of the event, said.
