The South East Asia region is characterized by its size, the diversity of its contexts and, above all, by its cultural and linguistic heterogeneity (7 major languages and more than 500 local languages). This is the region of birth of HI and our activities are still largely traditional, with a dominant in Inclusion (42% of the 2021 budget volume), Rehabilitation (19%) and Mine Action (15%). The region encompasses a wide variety of humanitarian contexts, ranging from the civil war in Myanmar, to support to the Vietnamese government in the development of an international standard of rehabilitation services, or to emergency responses to climate-related disasters in the Philippines.

In February 2020, HI initiated the process of regionalization of the Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam programs, joined later by China (October 2021) and the Philippines (January 2023). The regional office is in Vientiane (Laos).

The living condition in Loas remains quite good with reliable transportation infrastructure, health services, and housing in the capital area.
