A future together on a sound financial footing
Good annual result
Owing to the merger of both organizations, the first consolidated annual financial statements, those for 2021, cannot be compared with previous years. They do nonetheless show the merged agency's financial foundation to be solid. Operating income rose to 98,8 million francs and expenditure to 89,2 million francs. This yielded in a good operating result of 9.6 million francs, which was assigned in large part to existing funds in Switzerland and abroad.
In 2021, HEKS/EPER allocated altogether 74,3 million francs for 217 projects abroad and in Switzerland. Some 13,8 million francs went to supporting development cooperation projects in Africa, Asia, Latin America and Europe. Another 2,1 million francs benefited church cooperation in Eastern Europe and the Middle East. HEKS/EPER also provided 16,3 million francs in humanitarian aid after droughts and disasters stemming from natural hazards, and in conflict zones.
