ADRA, or the Adventist Development and Relief Agency, is the global humanitarian organization that provides relief and development assistance in more than 130 countries.

ADRA MENA has county offices in Kurdistan, Lebanon, Sudan, Syria, Tunisia, and Yemen. They provide services such as education, development, food security, health, and winter assistance for refugees. Visit them online at www.adramena.org
Local churches provide services that are most needed in their communities. For example, they may have a community garden where anyone can come and work and then take home some of the fruits and vegetables. They may have regular distributions of food and clothing for refugees. They may provide a hot breakfast once a week for the homeless. In any way that the church can help, it does so to make the world a little kinder for those in need.
