About ADRA Norway

ADRA Norway (Adventist Development and Relief Agency) was established as a foundation in April 1993 by the Seventh-day Adventist Church in Norway. Our work builds on a long tradition of social welfare work done by the church members for more than 80 years. There has been a shift from handouts and charity to long term and sustainable development done in partnership with the local communities themselves. Even for emergency management, a longer term perspective is applied.

Partnership

Partnership

Based on its values and working principles, ADRA Norway works in partnerships with various stakeholders, including ADRA organizations in the South. Our main implementing partners are ADRA in Peru, Ethiopia, Sudan, Somalia, Myanmar, Thailand and Cambodia. As for emergencies, we coordinate closely with the ADRA network, and involve where the need is greatest. We use Sphere as a standard in all our emergency management work.
