When natural disasters occur and during and after armed conflicts, HEKS/EPER provides needs-based emergency aid worldwide so as to rapidly improve the lot of civilians. HEKS/EPER focuses its humanitarian aid on the following four areas: distributing vital aid supplies such as water, food, hygiene products and providing temporary shelter; improving economic livelihoods; rebuilding damaged or destroyed houses and infrastructure; and boosting the capacity of the civilian population to withstand future disasters and conflicts. HEKS/EPER thus provides help for self-help, especially for extremely poor, vulnerable and endangered people and, together with those directly affected, develops sustainable prospects. Such partnership helps reinforce their autonomy and dignity.
