Where we help

AVC International is active in around 60 countries worldwide, AVC Switzerland in 49 of them. All of these countries have one thing in common: they are afflicted by war, natural disasters, hunger, persecution, material and spiritual poverty or, even worse, a whole range of the above-mentioned hardships. Wherever possible, AVC invests itself wholeheartedly in the needy, lost and forgotten people of this world.

How we help
We bring about holistic and lasting change in the lives of people in need through material aid, emotional support and spiritual guidance.
