The Adventist Development and Relief Agency (ADRA) is the relief arm of the Adventist Church. ADRA focuses on individual and community development and disaster relief through its five portfolios namely: Disaster Preparedness and Response, Economic Development, Primary Health, Food Security, and Education. ADRA operates in more than 125 countries worldwide seeking to “Change the world, one life at a time”.
The ADRA Guyana Country Office currently operates several projects in various parts of the country. Projects currently implemented include HIV/AIDS, literacy, nutrition, agriculture, and sewing. Two projects to be implemented shortly are a potable well project in Amerindian communities in the interior of the country, and a Micro Enterprise Development Project designed to assist individuals and small groups to become self-sufficient. There are a number of project proposals, covering ADRA’s five portfolio areas, waiting to be funded. In this regard, ADRA will most gladly welcome sponsorship for these projects. Donors can contact the ADRA/Guyana Country Director to receive further details and discuss the sponsorship of a particular project further.
This office is also responsible for Frontier Missions
