Peter* was an orphan. With no parents he was forced to live with his estranged sister. But Peter never felt safe – his sister’s husband was violet and would often scare Peter. Peter would often go without food, and be forced to scavenge on the streets. He was hungry, and without hope.

One day, we found Peter and offered him the chance to join our school feeding program, which was part of our child education sponsorship program. Peter was excited – for the first time he would be guaranteed a meal! He would happily go along to eat his breakfast – he could feel his strength regaining, his health improving and he was happy.[/text_output][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_raw_html]JTNDZGl2JTIwY2xhc3MlM0QlMjJ0b3AtZ2FwJTIyJTNFJTNDJTJGZGl2JTNF[/vc_raw_html][text_output]Skip ahead a few years – and the miracle of Peter is incredible/Peter’s world has changed profoundly. Not only has he finished primary school and graduated from high school. But with the support of the government, Peter was able to qualify for a scholarship and is now at university! In his excitement, all Peter can say is “Long live ADRA. My life will never be the same again.”

ADRA Kenya changes lives of many orphans and vulnerable children like Peter.

The network: Adventist Development and Relief Agency (ADRA)

The Adventist Development and Relief Agency (or ADRA) is the official humanitarian agency of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, a 20-million strong community, with hundreds of thousands of churches globally and the world’s largest integrated healthcare and education network.

ADRA is a global network. ADRA offices in over 118 countries are locally registered and recognized. Each country office is registered in the country where it is established and is responsible to a local Board of Directors. As a network, ADRA implements thousands of projects, benefiting millions of people each year—regardless of their ethnicity, political affiliation, gender, or religious association.

Founded in 1956 as the Seventh-day Adventist Welfare Service (SAWS) and renamed ADRA in 1984, the agency has a long and successful history of providing humanitarian relief and implementing development initiatives.

By partnering with communities, organizations, and governments, the ADRA network is able to deliver culturally relevant programs, build local capability for sustainable change and improve the quality of life of millions.

The ADRA network annual program expenses total approximately US$200 million—made possible through private contributions from individuals like you, corporations, foundations, and other entities. It also obtains funding and commodities from governmental and intergovernmental organizations such as the United Nations.

ADRA does not proselytize. God’s love in ADRA’s programs is expressed when it reaches out to those in need regardless of race, gender, and political, or religious affiliation. We work in harmony with a broad array of cultures, traditions, and peoples of all faiths, respecting the human dignity of all.
