Brokenness is a fact of life.
It can come equally to those who least expect it as well as those who have known no different. It can also come in many different forms and ways – disaster, trauma, poverty, neglect, or lack of opportunity. It can affect an individual, a family, a community or an entire country.
Yet even in a situation that seems hopeless and helpless there is help and the opportunity for people to actively assist in relieving this brokenness.
The Seventh-day Adventist Church, through the Adventist Development Relief Agency or ADRA, as it is commonly known, has been involved in the work of rebuilding lives for 60 years (www.adra.org). ADRA is a humanitarian organisation that creates opportunities, empowers people and shares hope to hundreds of people in South Queensland, Australia and internationally
In addition to disaster relief, we currently have several ADRA projects across South Queensland.
The ADRA projects rely heavily on the passion and willingness of our many volunteers and those that donate of their funds. If you would like to volunteer, then please contact the ADRA project directly by going to the website, or contact the ADRA Conference Director. If you would like to make a donation, then please go to the ADRA Australia website www.adra.org.au. Click on the ‘Donate’ link at the top of the screen, select ‘Other’ and then state the project that you wish to donate to. If you would like to find out more about starting up an ADRA project in your local community, then please contact the ADRA Conference Director.
Working with an ADRA project can give you the opportunity to be the hands and feet of Jesus in a world that has forgotten who he truly is (https://www.youtube.com/user/ADRAInternational).
