It is our dream that this year each and every member of the Seventh Day Adventist church would help to fundraise to help people in need during the Annual Appeal and make it a bigger and better success than last year!
In 2013 we raised a total of £539,133 during the Annual Appeal.
The money was allocated for the following projects:
£406,773 of the donations raised was used overseas to fund several global development projects that made a real difference in the lives of thousands of people in Burkina Faso, Rwanda, Myanmar and Zimbabwe. £31,000 was used to support projects in the British Isles and in addition we provided almost £50,000 to provide emergency relief through the ADRA network in Lebanon, Myanmar, Uganda, India and the Philippines. The remainder was used to pay for running the Annual Appeal.
It is thanks to our faithful supporters, that last year ADRA-UK has been able to help over 225,000 people globally with donations raised through the Annual Appeal.
We can’t do it without YOU. Please help us to help.
The 2014 Annual Appeal runs from the 29th of March to the 13th of April (until the 20th of April in Greater London). This year, funds raised from the Appeal will also support two new key projects:
Improved livelihoods in Myanmar
With your help ADRA will help over 15 villages with little to no farming and no work, to set up food processing industries and train people in small-scale business skills.
Women’s health project Zimbabwe
With your help ADRA will provide four women’s maternal health shelters in existing hospitals benefitting over 40,000 mothers and children.
So, this year whether you go door-to-door collecting, participate in a sponsored walk, bike ride or cake sale, thank you for helping us to help!
