In the period between the 29th of March and the 13th of April (20th of April in London), many thousands of volunteers have been collecting from door-to-door for the work of ADRA-UK. This was the 101th year that volunteers have been door-knocking to help people in need.

During the ADRA Appeal period many other fundraising activities have taken place, from sponsored walks to benefit concerts to car washes. 

Last year was the centenary of ADRA and our volunteers collected over £500,000! This year with such a wonderful achievement behind us we hope to increase that amount so that we can continue to help saving lives and empowering communities.

Without these activities and the hard work of our volunteers, ADRA-UK would not be in a position to address the humanitarian issues of the world.

Providing livelihoods in Myanmar

Developing livelihoods in the Dry zone, Myanmar,

Myanmar has several communities who are struggling to survive, due to the extreme drought conditions that they live in.

With your help ADRA will help over 15 villages with little to no farming and no work, to set up food processing industries and train people in small-scale business skills.

These skills will help people to form co-operatives and trade with markets in other larger towns. 

ADRA will also raise awareness of HIV amongst the community as well as training on practices to reduce their vulnerability to natural disasters.

To do this we need your help

It is with your generous support and sacrifice by door to door collecting this year, that you are continuing to 'Help us to help'

help us to help

Funds raised in 2014 will support development projects in Africa, Asia and the UK. ADRA-UK also responds to international disasters.
