Mission East

Address Skt. Lukas Vej 13 2900 Hellerup Denmark

Mission East is certified as compliant with the Core Humanitarian Standard for both our relief and development programmes and is a long-standing signatory to the Red Cross Code of Conduct. Mission East is committed to applying SPHERE technical standards to our work wherever relevant.


Mission East is an international relief and development organisation founded in Denmark in 1991. We provide emergency assistance after disasters, work to improve long-term living conditions for communities struggling with poverty, and advocate for the inclusion of marginalised groups such as people with disabilities.

All this with a vision of empowering people and communities to lift themselves out of crisis, poverty and marginalisation. We support communities’ capacities to organise and assist themselves, often in partnership with local or international partners who share our goals.

Our programmes are funded by institutional donors, private foundations, churches and individual supporters. Mission East is founded on Christian values and in all our work we strive to live out our ‘values in action’: honesty, integrity, compassion, respect for all people and valuing the individual.
