ADRA UK Annual Appeal – 2017 fundraising events 

Newbold Church is proud to be involved in fundraising activities taking place between the 25th of March and 14th of May 2017 in support of the ADRA UK Annual Appeal. Last year, we raised over £12,000 and this year, we hope to increase that amount to help ADRA UK continue to help saving lives and empowering communities.

 

ADRA’s featured projects for 2017

UK: Providing disadvantaged people with opportunities to improve their lives through the support of community centres, disability support projects, crisis relief, food banks and soup kitchens.

Nepal: Helping 30,000 smallholder farmers increase their household income through training and providing links to market suppliers.

Swaziland: Addressing disease and malnutrition through training, nutritional coaching, and the provision of drought-tolerant supplies and clean drinking water.

In addition, ADRA works in over 120 countries to provide food security, livelihoods, health, disaster relief, basic education and advocacy. Contributions to the 2017 ADRA Annual Appeal will also support projects in Somalia, Thailand, Chad and Rwanda.
