Who We Are
The Adventist Development and Relief Agency (ADRA) is the official humanitarian agency of the Seventh-day Adventist Church.
To serve humanity so all may live as God intended.
Let's Change Lives Together
Here are some of the key ways we’re making a difference together.
Here’s how together, we’re making a life-changing impact both at home and overseas.
You can change lives today and tomorrow! A monthly gift to ADRA can transform the life of someone facing poverty.
ADRA is on the ground responding to help families recover.
Be a Change Maker
ADRA is changing the world, all thanks to people like you! Through our supporters, we’re able to run a range of different development projects and respond to disasters right here in New Zealand and around the world.
We work in four key impact areas
Health is at the heart of so much of the world’s poverty and suffering. We work with communities to provide food, clean water, and other health resources.
Education changes everything, yet 1 in 5 children are not in school. ADRA advocates for childrens rights to education and implements projects that support education.
Helping people provide for themselves creates change that can be seen for generations. We’re committed to helping people strengthen their livelihoods and build self-reliance.
Through ADRA’s global network we respond to disasters around the world. We provide immediate relief and often support longer term recovery.
