Who we are

Justice, Compassion, Love

ADRA EUROPE, based in Brussels/Belgium, is the ADRA Regional Office coordinating the work of and supporting the around 30 ADRA offices in Europe.

We are the global humanitarian arm of the Seventh-day Adventist Church—part of the 21.9-million strong Adventist community, with hundreds of thousands of churches globally and the world’s largest integrated healthcare and education network.

We deliver relief and development assistance to individuals in more than 120 countries—regardless of their ethnicity, political affiliation, gender, or religious association.

By partnering with local communities, organizations, and governments, we are able to deliver culturally relevant programs and build local capability for sustainable change.
