Today is the International Day of the Disappeared - a day dedicated to awareness of those who disappear in connection with armed conflict or other violence. On their website, the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) states that relatives of missing persons "suffer immensely as they struggle to find out what became of the missing person." They go on to say...

More needs to be done to help the thousands of families of missing persons. On 30 August, the International Day of the Disappeared, the ICRC is highlighting their plight, and explaining what the organization is doing to help.

In Nepal, Heifer International and the ICRC are working together to provide rehabilitation and healing to the families affected psychologically and economically by conflicts in that nation. Our teammates in Nepal created the video below to tell this story.
