An expert in tackling social issues

Helsinki Deaconess Institute is a non-profit organisation, a bold and influential player. We are specialists in social problems and special groups in society. We create new solutions specifically in areas where human dignity is jeopardised. Our work is guided by the values of Christian charity.

The Helsinki Deaconess group provides wide-ranging social welfare and health care services. The proceeds from the group's operations and assets are used to promote health and well-being and to build a more just society.
