The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) has launched a campaign to reunite more than one thousand abandoned Liberian children in refugee camps in Guinea and Sierra Leone with their parents in Liberia. Addressing a press conference Jan. 6 in Monrovia, ICRC Liberian delegation officials said pictures of the children were being displayed in refugee camps, host communities, schools, hospitals and other public places throughout Liberia, in a bid to trace families. Parents and relatives of about 80 of the children have already been found since the program began in the last week in December.
