Question HELP! I’ve just lost all my dads contacts in his iPhone 5c

I was just trying to transfer my dads contacts from his 5C to a 6S and while setting him up an iCloud account, all his contacts got deleted. Any ideas how to recover them?
He looks after two elderly relatives and all the carer and hospital contacts are the most important that are gone.
Help please!

Might be helpful if you explained how you sorted the issue, in case someone is searching the forums for the same question.

Luckily as my dad is old skool, he had most of his contacts on his sim, so I reimported them, and the ones he'd added since he started using an iPhone, I recovered using a free tool called Gihosoft.

I see, that’s great then.

That's great) But for future - Iphone synchronizes all the contacts to Icloud account but to stay more secure you can additionally synchronize them with your gmail
