What is ADRA?

ADRA stands for ‘The Adventist Development and Relief Agency’. We are the global humanitarian arm of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, and our core purpose is to serve humanity so ALL may live as God intended. We do this by operating with Justice, Compassion and Love.

While ADRA is often known to many for its expertise in disaster response, our development projects are at the core of our work across three key pillars; Health, Education, and Livelihoods.
