ServingAn important Biblical task of the local church is the care for the needy, inside and outside the church. GZB supports local churches to develop and strengthen their diaconal role in society. GZB has a strong desire to help especially the most marginalized groups in society (poorest of the poor).
In many countries, churches and Christian organizations play an important role in the broader community. They fight poverty and injustice or are involved in basic healthcare and education. This also includes behavioural change (especially relevant in combating violence against women and girls, HIV, acceptance of the disabled etc.).
Last but not least, GZB is involved in relief work after natural disasters or in war situations. Examples are the earthquake in Nepal (April 2015) and the refugee crisis in the Middle East.
