Through partnerships with local communities, organisations and governments ADRA manages to be a positive force in enriching the quality of life of many, by working in the following areas: disaster relief, mitigation, social justice, education, economic empowerment and prevention of gender based violence.



Our values




These values guide our life and work, within the organisation itself, as well as through our conduct towards those we serve and all those we cooperate with.

To be connected means:

▶️ Be actively involved with all staff members, local communities and our God,
▶️ Follow the purpose of ADRA in our life,
▶️ Have clear expectations of others,
▶️ Be responsible towards one another,
▶️ Maintain transparency by having direct communication and understanding of our work style.

To be bold means:

▶️ Maintain agility and delegate decision making to others based on mutual confidence, where all those involved are responsible for their actions,
▶️ Boldly initiate innovative changes in a tormented world,
▶️ Protect and represent the rights of our patrons, partners and employees.

Compassion is demonstrated as:

▶️ Solidarity with people and communities we serve towards achieving our goal,
▶️ Being present “next to” your employees and colleagues,
▶️ Taking care of each other honestly and for real.

The Purpose

Serve the people, for all to live as God has intended.

We are led by faith and guided by prayer.

We share the same conviction as in 1956, when we provided our assistance for the first time for families in need – for God created all men to thrive and progress in life.

Such an approach to serving others and God is simple, but it is a part of life for people in over 130 countries all over the world.

Regardless of their region, language or challenges we are facing, we aim towards the same goal – the world where people will live as God has intended.

Life as such is based on justice, compassion and love.

Justice – where each step would be made based on its effect on all others. We support the view where each child is given not just the basic rights, such as water, good, and shelter but as well be given the opportunity to become an individual in it’s own right.

Compassion – for nobody should carry the burden on it’s own. On the other hand, life itself is blessed with compassion hence encouraging acts of generosity. Our determination in life to serve others brings us and others the best that life has to offer.

And love. God is calling us to commence acts of love with no boundaries, love so strong that anyone could clearly see it reflects God in our acts as well as services we offer. Such love becomes real in steps we take, no matter how small they are, both at home and all over the world.

God invited all people to be the embodiment of those three values from the Bible, of the prophet Micah 6:8. Act justly and love mercy and walk humbly with your God.
We live according to the same values, while hoping others to acquire them as well. We share them with others so they can share them further.


Justice. Compassion. Love.
