One of the greatest sources of trauma in the aftermath of disasters is not knowing how your kin and friends have fared.

This is especially true when families are divided by economic reasons, as in the case of the families of the millions of overseas Filipino workers.

So many friends and relatives have sought help to find their missing families. Social media is full of prayers and appeals for help.

In Tacloban, the DSWD has put up a satellite-comms-driven center where people can access social media just to tell the world they’re okay.

For those who may not have heard yet from kin, I’d like to share these resources.

It will help rescue and relief workers if you provide them with the following information:

  • Complete names of the persons you’re searching for or, at the least, head of family and number of family members
  • Complete address of the missing person and last known contact number
  • Circumstances when that person went meeting (or the last word you heard from them)
  • Your contact details so relief and rescue teams can inform you if there are results. 

Please try to minimize follow-up calls or messages because it could distract rescue teams and make it hard for others to access the missing-person services. Trust that people out there are risking their lives to help you and your loved one. And please inform rescue and relief teams once you’ve found your relatives so they can release resources and manpower for others in need.
