For over 50 years, the Adventist Development and Relief Agency (or ADRA as we’re better known as!) has been implementing life-changing projects around the world. ADRA is an international humanitarian organisation and the official humanitarian heart of the Seventh-day Adventist Church and we’re committed to being a literal representation of Jesus’ hands and feet all around the word. We have a presence in 134 countries around the world, supporting more than 30 million people each year with life changing programmes and emergency relief. What’s good to know is – no one is left out of ADRA’s reach. ADRA is committed to assisting all people – regardless of their ethnicity, their race or their religious, political or gender affiliation. We believe Christ’s ministry of compassion should extend to everyone and anyone who is in need – including families in our own backyard of New Zealand.
