In Asia, Diakonia co-operates with partner organisations in Bangladesh, Myanmar/Burma, Cambodia, Sri Lanka and Thailand.
Fighting poverty and improving human rights and equality
The common goal for our work is to fight against poverty, strengthen the gender equality and be a part of processes where the most vulnerable and exposed people have the opportunity to conquer a just life in dignity.
The main themes for all Diakonia's international development work are present in all our efforts:
Work related to ethnic conflicts
Some of our partners also work with questions related to ethnic conflicts. This work is mainly being carried out in Myanmar/Burma and Sri Lanka, but also in Cambodia.
In Thailand, Diakonia provides humanitarian aid to Burmese refugees.
