The Adventist Development and Relief Agency (ADRA) International is an independent humanitarian agency established in 1984 by the Seventh-day Adventist Church for the specific purposes of individual and community development and disaster relief. The Economic and Social Council of the United Nations granted ADRA general consultative status in 1997.

ADRA recognizes the dignity that is inherent in each person and is committed to improving quality of human life. ADRA serves people without regard to their ethnic, political, or religious association. It simply helps people in need, especially those most vulnerable such as women, children, and senior citizens.

ADRA’s development and relief work is divided among five core portfolio activities: Food Security, Economic Development, Primary Health, Disaster Preparedness and Response, and Basic Education.

ADRA is active in 120 countries including India.
