Children

Children are among the most vulnerable to the hardships of living in poverty. In the past year, approximately 6.6 million children died before reaching their fifth birthday.Often, their life circumstances deny them proper nutrition, a safe and sanitary environment, and basic education.

ADRA operates supplemental feeding programs to help children grow healthy and strong. ADRA ensures the safety and rehabilitation of child victims of neglect and abuse at its many shelters staffed with physicians, nurses, psychologists, and social workers. Additionally, ADRA runs education initiatives to help children grow up and become productive members of society, breaking the poverty cycle by unlocking a world of opportunity and a future with hope for success.
