Who is ADRA?

ADRA is the global humanitarian arm of the Seventh-day Adventist Church—part of the 20-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 107 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.

Where we work

Our work touches millions of lives in more than 107 countries around the world. Our on-the-ground approach allows immediate assistance in times of crisis and true partnership with the communities we serve.

Usage of Donation

Because we serve humanity, our work is diverse. For the Tokyo Marathon 2024 Charity, you can choose the use of your donation from the 3 categories below;

1)Emergency relief

We provide humanitarian aid to those who lost their secure life due to war, conflict or natural disaster. We are currently working for people in Ukraine, Ethiopia, Myanmar, Yemen, Afghanistan, South Sudan, Syria and others.

With your donation, you can save 100 lives
by enabling ADRA to provide 20 boxes of 15 kg of food to those still displaced in Ukraine. (One example)


We build classrooms for those who has no proper place to learn. We run special classes for children who have never been to school. And we also provide school grants for children from economically disadvantaged families.

With your donation, you can help 3 Nepalese children to finish school
through ADRA’s sponsorship program. (One example)

With your donation, you can help children to learn
by enabling ADRA to provide a new set of textbooks to a school where only the teachers have them. Children share one textbook to copy it by hand. Another set of new textbooks means a lot to them. (One example)

3)Health and Sanitation

We help people live a life with dignity. We help them to have clean drinking water, hygienic living conditions, and the confidence to protect their own health by providing knowledge and facilities.

With your donation, you can help mothers
by enabling ADRA to provide daily radio broadcasts in rural areas of Nepal, where child mortality and malnutrition rates are higher than in other areas. Radio is an effective medium for raising awareness among those who cannot read. Imagine how happy they will be when they know how to save their children. (One example)
