Fighting hunger and poverty. Promoting peace and justice.

CWS’s work in Asia has a clear and defining focus: to help improve the lives of those who is in Asia’s most vulnerable communities, whether in emergency situations or for longer-term development work. More specifically, we aim to improve people’s quality of life by enhancing their access to basic human rights, such as clean drinking water, food, health, shelter and education.
