“The Adventist Development and Relief Agency is a global humanitarian organization of the Seventh-Day Adventist Church that demonstrates God’s love and compassion.”
ADRA India has been implementing humanitarian projects to help the most vulnerable in India for more than 20 years since 1987. With formal registration in 1992, it has implemented more than 140 projects worth more than 30 Million USD, and reached over 22 million people.
Thank you for visiting the ADRA India web site! Our organization is part of a global network of independent humanitarian organizations established in 1984 by the Seventh-Day Adventist Church now with presence in 125 countries. ADRA provides individual and community development and disaster relief without regard to political or religious association, age, gender, or ethnicity.In India, the gap between the rich and the poor is maybe more prevalent here than anywhere else in the world. It is true that India is a growing economic power, however we cannot hide from knowing that more than two thirds of India’s 1.2 billion people, live close-to or below the poverty line.
One of the latest projects ADRA India is implementing is the so-called 10 + Plan. This is a plan that gives each of the Seventh-day Adventist Church attendants the opportunity to participate in this humanitarian adventure every week by giving a donation of 10 rupees or more to support ADRA India ministry of behalf of the most vulnerable.
The main goal of this plan is to allow ADRA India to work closer with the Seventh-day Adventist Church constituency in such a way that each member can become acquainted with the work, activities and mission of ADRA in the country while humanitarian culture is being seeded in their heart.
