Who we are


 Did you know last year ADRA-UK helped close to 1 million people living in poverty or distress and gave disaster relief to over 75,000 people!

See ADRA Statement of Operational Intent Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh 2017.

We strive to make the world a more just and liveable place for disadvantaged people around the globe. We contribute to the eradication of poverty and distress through life-changing, long-term development and disaster relief.

Put simply, ADRA-UK improves the lives of people throughout the world. We search out and work to eliminate deprivation, social injustice, and help those in need. We work to create lasting solutions — empowering people to reach their potential.

ADRA-UK works in 5 key sectors to achieve this:

  1. Food Security
  2. Livelihoods
  3. Health
  4. Disaster Relief
  5. Advocacy  

This year’s Annual Appeal (Ingathering) will take place from the 25th of March – 9thof April (16th of April in Greater London) and serves as a great fundraiser to start the year for ADRA-UK. 

For those of you who are interested in volunteering the ADRA Fun Run serves as a great fundraising activity and BRAND new for this year, we have launched FREE Parachute Jumps across the UK for those of you who are adrenaline junkies. (Click here for event) 

For those of you who are interested in travelling abroad, our ADRA Connections trips offer people the chance of a lifetime! (Click here for more information)
