HEKS champions the cause of a more humane and just world and a life in dignity. Internationally, HEKS/EPER focuses on rural community development, humanitarian aid, and inter-church cooperation. In Switzerland, HEKS/EPER champions the rights and the integration of refugees and socially disadvantaged people.
HEKS/EPER supports rural communities in the departments of Grand’Anse and Petit Goâve in building up high value-added agricultural production chains so as to enable them to meet their basic needs. HEKS/EPER also assists the Haitian Government in implementing development plans and provides emergency relief after natural disasters.
The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) is the world’s largest humanitarian network that reaches 150 million people in 190 National Societies through the work of over 17 million volunteers.
Together, we act before, during and after disasters and health emergencies to meet the needs and improve the lives of vulnerable people. We do so without discrimination as to nationality, race, religious beliefs, class or political opinions.
