Disaster & Famine Relief

Help ensure ADRA is there today, tomorrow, and beyond for disaster relief.

As we approach ADRA Canada’s annual Disaster and Famine Relief Offering (DFRO), the urgency of our mission resonates more deeply than ever. It’s understandable if you, like many of us, feel overwhelmed by the ceaseless reports of global conflicts and crises. But on May 11, 2024, you have the chance to transform despair into hope for survivors worldwide.

During the DFRO, your offerings will directly support the resilience of those we serve. Behind every statistic lies a story of courage, perseverance, and hope beyond what seems rationally believable. From the streets of war-torn cities to the makeshift shelters of displaced families, what the world needs now is your compassion in action.
