Worldwide solidarity is a basic principle of assistance in the service of our fellow humans. In these times when our lives are subject to ever increasing globalisation, we see it as our responsibility to provide assistance wherever it may be required in the world.
Providing disaster relief as Diakonie Katastrophenhilfe and development cooperation as Brot für die Welt, the work of Diakonie Austria is designed to strengthen the independence and initiative of those concerned. We provide assistance in the wake of natural disasters, war or displacement to those people who are most vulnerable, regardless of race, religion, gender or age. We place particular emphasis on support for long-term development projects in developing countries.
