ADRA Somalia Serving the local population since 1992
While Somalia was struggling with lawlessness as a failed state, ADRA Somalia provided the aid necessary to keep millions of people alive. Now, as the nation emerges with an internationally backed government, ADRA Somalia is prioritizing development. In addition to emergency response, our team has acquired considerable experience in health, agriculture, water, primary education, and food security.Make a difference around the world

Capacity Statement OverviewFood security has always been the heart of ADRA Somalia’s mission. For more than two decades, hunger has weakened the citizens of Somalia and the stability of the struggling nation. By implementing our successful food programs, we have helped combat this crisis. Our work in Jowhar District, Middle Shabelle Region, and Hiran has fostered an environment for food sustainability. In these regions, we have rehabilitated irrigation canals, introduced greenhouse technologies, reintroduced productive rice varieties, formed farmers’ associations, and developed better agricultural training programs.
Our Capacity Statement further highlights the projects, programs, and people of ADRA Somalia.
Country OverviewSomalia is a land devastated by war. For 20 years, it was considered a failed state, with no government, no law, and no hope for the half million people who died of starvation during the famines of 1992 and 2010-12. Tribal conflicts have produced chaos throughout Somalia, destroying the infrastructure and restricting access to food, water, education, and health care for millions of people.
