Our projects

HEKS/EPER is making a difference in the «Church parish partnerships» in Switzerland

Through its work in Switzerland, Swiss Church Aid (HEKS/EPER) fosters social inclusion for disadvantaged people, promotes equal opportunity and supports asylum seekers and other socially deprived people with legal advice.

HEKS in der Schweiz

HEKS/EPER maintains six regional offices in Switzerland, which operate over 50 projects in 13 cantons.

Open, vibrant and socially engaged churches effectively attract members and fulfil an important role in society. HEKS/EPER therefore supports the youth and community work of church parishes in Eastern Europe and the Middle East, and contributes financially towards the renovation of buildings that are important to church life. HEKS/EPER also promotes solidarity among the Reformed Churches. Partnerships between church parishes in Switzerland and abroad pave the way for reciprocal visits and exchanges and promote support for projects run by partner parishes. Dialogue within the reformed community and with other confessions as well as between church and society enables the Reformed Churches to play an intermediary and social role.
