“To provide help for people in need is the proof of humanity. Furthermore, whether we want or not, reality of cruel conditions of living of around 250 millions of families all around the globe (consequence of extreme poverty, wars and natural disasters) is also our problem and it involves us.
That is why ADRA Slovakia provides humanitarian and development aid. Effective legal, psycho-social, educational and volunteer projects in the world and also here in Slovakia are the ways how we solve the causes, not only consequences of the poverty.
Our aim is to lead people to independence. To enable affected family or victim of the violence to recover doesn’t cost too much but brings sustainable meaningful change. We also enjoy forwarding our years of experience to volunteers and to hundreds of smart people from the non-profit sector. It enables them to provide high-quality aid in the places of the highest need.
These are the reasons why we help and improve lives of people in need. That is why we educate and teach others how to provide help. Because we believe it makes sense.”
