South Sudan Crisis Erupts Again

10,000 sheltered on church grounds 

On July 8th 2016 hostilities began anew in South Sudan. At one point over 10,000 people flooded into compound owned by the Seventh-day Adventist Church in the capital of Juba.  Various buildings including the South Sudan ADRA office are located within the compound, but lack of space meant many had to remain outdoors.  

ADRA parterned with the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) and was able to provide emergency food.

Please join us in praying for those caught in these uncertain and dangerous times in South Sudan. You can learn more about the crisis here

Syrian Schools to be Repaired

ADRA Canada announces our newest project in Syria

The Syrian conflict has taken a serious toll on school infrastructure and limited education opportunities for children. Many children have lost up to four years of schooling, while others have dropped out with little chance of returning.  

As part of the project 300 classrooms will be repaired so that classes can resume.

Big Sur Cycle Challenge

There are only a few spots left!

Participants in the Big Sur Classic will pedal their way down the Pacific Coast Highway from Monterey to Paso Robles, just North of San Luis Obispo, from September 25-27th to raise funds for a school in Lebanon. 

Funds raised for ADRA Canada will be used to help Syrian refugee children resume their education.

"When we discovered that ADRA was participating in a cycling trip down the coast of California to raise funds for children in poverty, my wife Lauren and I leapt at the opportunity."  Rick Wiegel, Participant
