HEKS/EPER is making a difference in the «Church cooperation» in Asia

HEKS/EPER operates in seven countries in Asia, namely Bangladesh, Cambodia, India, Iraq, Israel/Palestine, Lebanon and Syria. In its rural community development work, HEKS/EPER assists smallholder families in enhancing their food security and incomes and supports disadvantaged minorities in claiming their rights and in resolving current conflicts non-violently. Under its humanitarian aid programmes HEKS/EPER provides assistance for refugees, internally displaced people and those affected by natural disasters.

Alongside development cooperation and humanitarian aid, church cooperation is the third pillar of HEKS/EPER's international work. For decades in some cases, HEKS/EPER has been supporting, advising, promoting and accompanying Reformed Churches in Eastern Europe, Italy and the Near East in their diaconal work and in building up vibrant church communities. HEKS/EPER supports various church-run social activities, especially for children and young people. In addition, HEKS/EPER is ensuring the continued existence of active church parishes through financial and logistical support for the renovation of run-down church buildings. Lastly, through church parish partnerships as well as exchange and continuing education programmes, HEKS/EPER promotes dialogue between Reformed Church parishes in Switzerland and partner churches abroad.
