Afghanistan

Mission East helps the vulnerable population in the remote regions of north-eastern Afghanistan to survive and recover from several decades of crisis. Mission East has worked in the country since 2001.

Armenia

Mission East has worked in Armenia since 1992. We started distributing emergency relief during the Nagorno-Karabakh war. Now, our work is focused on the country’s most marginalised and vulnerable inhabitants – especially children and youth with disabilities.

Current Crises

During emergencies, Mission East supports people in countries where we are usually not present. This work is carried out through partner organisations.

Iraq

Since 2014, Mission East has helped hundreds of thousands of people in conflict-ridden Northern Iraq, providing emergency relief, psycho-social support and long-term assistance. The operation is the largest in the organisation’s history.

Myanmar

Following decades of isolation, Myanmar has opened up to the outside world. This means that international organisations can now work for some of the country’s most vulnerable groups. Mission East supports the impoverished Mara people.

Nepal

Mission East works to lift vulnerable people and communities out of extreme poverty, mainly in the remote Karnali Zone in western Nepal. When a major natural disaster occurs anywhere in the country, we step in with emergency relief.

North Korea

Two out of every five people in North Korea are undernourished and one in five do not have access to clean water and sanitation. Mission East helps the rural population improve food security as well as water and sanitation facilities.

Tajikistan

Since the end of the civil war in 1997, Mission East has helped thousands of people in Tajikistan’s rural communities with clean water and latrines, livelihood training, how to cope with disasters, and promoted the rights and inclusion of vulnerable groups such as people living with disabilities.
