Big Give Reuniting Separated Families

British Red Cross is participating in the Big Give Christmas challenge the UK’s biggest online match funding campaign which will help us to raise £90,000 for our family reunion appeal.

After the trauma of fleeing their home, one small comfort is that a refugee can legally bring over their children and partner. They don’t have to stay apart forever. This is called ‘family reunion’ – and it’s part of UK and international law. But some families cannot afford the legal help to make it happen – and it’s keeping loved ones apart. Furthermore the lack of legal support also leaves women and children stranded in dangerous situations.

*Match funding is available to the British Red Cross up to a total of £45,000 for our Reuniting Separated Families project, so every donation given between 28 – November and 5 December will be matched up to £45,000. Should donations exceed this total, your donation will still be gratefully received, but not matched.  Each donor can make a gift of up to £5k to qualify to have their donation matched until the matched funds are exhausted.
