Eurodiaconia is a federation of non-governmental organisations, diaconal institutions and churches providing social and health services and education based on Christian values. Members’ activities facilitate social cohesion and inclusion through education, advocacy and the provision of social and health services to all who need them. Eurodiaconia is committed to ensuring quality of life for all in a social Europe.
“Diakonia” is Greek for “service”, it means working for reconciliation: by bringing help where it is needed, demanding justice in situations of exclusion and advocating for those whose voice is not heard. From this experience and commitment, we call on the European Union for an authentic political commitment to tackle poverty and social exclusion with concrete actions.
