    Goals / Remit

    HEKS/EPER Swiss Church Aid is committed to justice, peace and the integrity of creation. Everyone should be able to lead a life in dignity and social, economic and political security. Headquartered in Zurich, Switzerland, it runs domestic social welfare programs, and provides development and humanitarian aid in currently 30 countries.

    Complementary Information

    HEKS/EPER Swiss Church Aid, being a Switzerland-based organisation, does not have dedicated staff for EU engagement. Most of our policy and advocacy work is done through networks mentioned above. However, different staff, mostly at country-level, engage with EU representatives on specific thematic issues relevant to our work in humanitarian aid and international development. Hence, providing an accurate estimate is difficult.
