We see the fear, anxiety and sorrow of parents who have lost their children for a few minutes in a mall or other public place. Then we’re asked to imagine how one lives with those feelings and torment for years in the aftermath of natural disasters or conflicts in war-torn regions.

The Red Cross helps to reunite three families a day who have been long separated in conflict-stricken areas or due to natural disasters. 

Directed by Simon Ratigan of HLA for adam&eveDDB, London, this :90 titled “Separated” asks for support of the Red Cross in it family-uniting endeavors. The PSA debuts during the holiday season when families around the world look forward to festive reunions.
