When a disaster strikes every second counts and with offices in over 130 countries in the world, ADRA is able to respond quickly and efficiently.
The funds, materials, and personnel for disaster relief are coordinated through local ADRA offices closest to the disaster in order to put plans into action and direct relief supplies to the hardest hit areas.
Here's some of the disaster relief projects that ADRA China has been involved with.
Papua New Guinea Earthquake - Southern Highlands Province, Papua New Guinea
On February 26, 2018 a 7.5 magnitude earthquake hit Papua New Guinea. There was an estimated 670,000 people living within 100km of the epicenter of the quake. Due to the rugged mountainous terrain and roads being blocked by landslides it has been challenging to access the remote villages of the Highland Province to provide aid relief. ADRA China, together with the Hong Kong Government and ADRA Papua New Guinea will provide 750 of the most vulnerable families with food and hygiene kits.
