25 years of ADRA

Together, we've made amazing things happen in the past 25 years.

For the past 25 years ADRA has served families facing poverty and hardship around the world and right here in New Zealand. We have delivered life-saving relief in response to disasters, we have been able to help people just like David and bring hope to the next generation. Read his story below! 

The only survivor

David's Story

David Silas is one of the oldest men in his village and has witnessed much devastation throughout his lifetime. Underground wells have been the only source of water for people in this village for over forty years. Many people in his village would struggle to get clean water from far away sources or underground wells. Other sources of water would carry mud and disease leading to illness and death because there were no other options available. “Most of my mates who first settled with me have died from it.”

Through ADRA projects, David’s village has been able to receive an alternative source of safe and sanitary water. “I am so happy and proud to be the only survivor of that time to witness this huge miracle of the new water supply project into our village”, shares David with tears in his eyes. This was only made possible with your support. Our prayer at ADRA is that you continue to help and support David and many other villages just like his.

David’s story is a testament to the change that can happen in just one year… but imagine what 25 years of change looks like!
