HEKS/EPER is making a difference in the «Church cooperation» in the region of Aargau/Solothurn

The HEKS/EPER Regional Office Aargau/Solothurn sees itself as a practice-oriented counselling and service entity that advocates with great professionalism on behalf of deprived groups in our society. The needs of the socially marginalized are effectively being met by providing social and legal services and cooperating with other aid agencies, government authorities and private institutions.

Important priorities in the work of the Regional Office are legal advice for asylum seekers and the socially disadvantaged, and the social inclusion of refugees, migrants and Swiss citizens experiencing poverty. Through its interpreting service, the Regional Office also facilitates contact between foreign language speakers and institutions concerned with health, social and educational matters.

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.
