Short organization description
EEDDA was established in September 1981 and aims at solidarity with the people's movements of Asia, Africa and Latin America and all other peoples fighting for their national independence and sovereignty, for peace and social justice. Through its three monthly review called "International Solidarity", EEDDA, in cooperation with all its departments, tries to diffuse the best possible information on its work. In the field of projects, EEDDA takes on development projects, sensitisation and development education projects as well as humanitarian projects, usually in the countries in which it already works for solidarity reasons.
EEDDA is a consisting part of the social mass movement of our country and struggles at the same time to demonstrate the narrow relationship existing between the problems and the struggle of the peoples of the underdeveloped and the developed countries.
