How can I become involved in ADRA’s programs?
We rely on the support of private individuals, churches, and schools to fulfill our mission. We’re always developing new ways for supporters to represent ADRA in their communities. Learn how you can spread the word about ADRA’s work in your neighborhood.
How does aid reach ADRA’s beneficiaries?
We have a worldwide infrastructure in more than 130 countries that enables the agency to preposition and store aid, such as food, medicines, equipment, emergency supplies, etc. Depending on the type of program and needs, ADRA uses a wide variety of transportation methods to get aid to our beneficiaries— a boat on the Amazon, a truck, a train, a solar-powered refrigerator in a local clinic, mobile units, and even volunteers on foot.
Does ADRA accept clothing?
ADRA does not accept used clothing. Often, unsolicited goods like used clothes, and canned goods clog transportation routes, hindering supplies from receiving clearance at shipping ports.
ADRA’s Really Useful Gift Catalog has several ways you can support families in need worldwide.
Are ADRA International projects audited?
The ADRA office in each country is responsible for coordinating audits for the projects they are funding. Responsibilities of the Internal Audit Office at ADRA International include monitoring and arranging external audits for projects funded by USAID. The General Conference Auditing Service audits ADRA country and administration accounting. All audit reports are submitted to ADRA International Internal Audit Office. These reports are presented to and reviewed by the ADRA Audit Review Committee, which reports directly to ADRA’s International’s Board of Directors. ADRA International is audited yearly by PricewaterhouseCoopers.
