Adventist Development and Relief Agency International
Adventist Development and Relief Agency International (ADRA) oversees a broad spectrum of relief and development programs. Microcredit and agricultural training contribute to self-sufficiency, food security, and clean water resources, while healthcare training and basic education help communities raise their own standard of living. Family development initiatives also engage in maternal mortality prevention. ADRA's HIV/AIDS program unites prevention, treatment, testing, and education efforts, along with special initiatives to protect the future of children whose lives are impacted by the disease. Disaster response initiatives combine immediate aid with long-term support. The organization also runs programs to combat violence against women and sex trafficking. ADRA has earned consultative status with the UN Economic and Social Council, and the organization's four thousand employees are present in more than 125 countries in Latin America, Africa, South and East Asia, Europe, and the Pacific.
