ADRA Deutschland e.V. is a nongovernmental, independent organisation of the Seventh-day Adventist Church. It was founded in 1987. ADRA stands for Adventist Development and Relief Agency and carries out development cooperation projects and humanitarian aid in disaster situations worldwide.
ADRA helps people – regardless of their ethnic origin, gender, religion or belief, disability, age or sexual identity. In doing so, ADRA takes into account the needs of local people and treats them with respect. They are equal partners with whom ADRA has a learning and participatory relationship.
Worldwide network, many years of experience
Due to the long experience and the worldwide proven contacts to our partners, ADRA is able to provide fast, effective and lasting help in emergency situations. Reconstruction, health, education and nutrition projects are just as much a part of our work as projects to promote economic and mental independence as well as projects for women, children and senior citizens.
ADRA is recognised in Germany as a non-profit and charitable organisation. ADRA has the DZI donation seal, is a member of the German Donations Council and participates in the Transparent Civil Society initiative.
