Serving humanity so all may live as God intended.
Fueled by faith and guided by prayer, ADRA has served our brothers and sisters for over 60 years.
When our pioneers started packing supplies for families in 1956, our belief in people was the same as it is now: All people were created by God to thrive.
It’s a simple approach to serving humanity but one that now spans the globe, impacting lives in more than 130 countries. No matter the location, language or challenge, we strive for the same thing – a world in which all people may live life as God intended.
A life filled abundantly with justice, mercy, and love.
Justice, so that every action is chosen for the impact it will have on others. We are called to an understanding that every child of God deserves not only the necessities of food, water and shelter, but the opportunity to be the unique individual they were created to be.
Mercy, because no one should carry their burden alone. In turn, a life blessed with mercy realizes more generosity. A commitment to serving others brings the best out in yourself, and those around you.
And love. The God who calls us asks for a love with no limitations, a love so strong that all may see the reflection of God’s character in our service, and a love that is made real through actions, big and small, worldwide and at home, defined by compassion.
Justice. Compassion. Love.
God called all to these three things in Micah 6:8. We live it, so others may have it. We share it, so it too can be shared.
Justice. Compassion. Love.

HISTORY OF ADRA IN SERBIA
ADRA Serbia, headquartered in Belgrade, is one of 130 national offices of ADRA International and has been active in the region since 1990. During the Yugoslav wars in the 90s that were fought inside the territory of former Yugoslavia, ADRA played a significant part in the humanitarian relief in Bosnia and Herzegovina, regardless of ethnic and religious association of the people in need. During the siege of Sarajevo, the longest siege of a capital city in the history of modern warfare, more than 100 brave, courageous and deeply committed volunteers distributed food and letters to the citizens of besieged Sarajevo. From 1992 to 1994 ADRA distributed around 270,000 fifteen-kilogram family food parcels and 320,000 letters.
After the war, ADRA, which had previously operated in the territory of former Yugoslavia, continues to operate as an organization in the territory of the Republic of Serbia till today.
