Diaconal Work

The word Diaconia is rooted in the Bible and can stand for 'caring for each other' or 'serving God in caring for our fellow creatures'. We are using the term to facilitate care for those who are in need and who receive no other help - out of the value of benevolence and Christian charity. The Amity Foundation is supporting Diacona through local churches, partner organizations and in our own work with professionally trained staff, social workers and volunteers.

Working with Churches

 

Since its establishment, Amity has teamed up with churches in China and overseas to serve as a bridge for the Christian Church and society. Our work can be categorized into three
general areas: capacity building for churches, developing projects and enhancing inter-church exchange and cooperation. Amity helps churches to develop and professionalize their own charity efforts and diaconal work.
Furthermore, we promote further unity among religions and churches through dialogues, exchanges, cooperation and mutual help, not only in China but worldwide.

Service for people

with Challenges

 

Autism, disabilities and mental challenges remain the focus of Amity’s work. These marginalized groups do not have enough capacity to make their own voices heard and their demands known. Amity has established institutional centres and reaches out into the communities to form support networks and train affected people, families and volunteers.
