We do a lot of humanitarian work through the Adventist Development and Relief Agency (ADRA). It is the official humanitarian agency of the Adventist Church. The agency is operated by the church for the purpose of providing individual and community development and disaster relief.
We see the needs and opportunities present in today’s world and believe that the church – with its strong networks, ability to mobilise volunteers and other resources, its commitment to justice, and drive to love and care for people who are suffering – is in a prime position to bring about positive social change.
The work we do through ADRA is made possible by people like you.
ADRA International is the global humanitarian arm of the Seventh-day Adventist Church—working to deliver relief and development assistance around the world regardless of their ethnicity, political affiliation, gender, or religious association. By partnering with local communities, organizations, and governments, we are able to deliver culturally relevant programs and build local capability for sustainable change. Through this network, our reach extends into more than 118 countries.
At the global level, there are four main areas of focus for ADRA:
Our mission is to work with those most in need – whether they are those who are suffering through poverty or those who have been affected by disaster, or both. We also support Australian’s facing crisis through a range of services including women’s refuges, community meals and refugee support programs.
Here’s where you can find assistance here in Sydney:
You can help by volunteering at one of our centres of support, by dropping off non-perishable foods at one of our food pantries, by referring us to someone you know in need, or by donating to ADRA Australia at www.adra.org.au/donate. All donations to ADRA Australia of $2 or more are tax-deductible.
