The Freemasons, through the Masonic Charitable Foundation, have granted £100,000 to the British Red Cross to help reunite families separated by conflict in the Ukraine.

The Red Cross has been reuniting families since World War Two, and this grant comes in addition to previous grants of over £1 million to help Ukrainian refugees, as well as those in neighboring countries.

Those looking for loved ones can also upload a photo of themselves on the Trace the Face website to help with identification.

The Red Cross urges donations where possible to support their efforts to reunite families.
