My Experience

ADRA is another organisation based on giving support to orphans, widows, aged and schools. Some time back and its now even 9 years ago my school I was teaching and worked as a headmaster was among the schools who received maize flour, clothes to the pupils, shoes and I was so proud of that. It was my first time to hear of ADRA but later I realized that the organisation came had taken long doing this work worldwide and got to know that its programmes are spreading everywhere in the world.
