‘We will first do  an assessment then see where we can help’

 

The Adventist Development and Relief Agency (ADRA) International will be sending a team to Vanuabalavu in Lau.

ADRA is a humanitarian agency operated by the Seventh-day Adventist Church for the purpose of providing individual and community development and disaster relief.

ADRA’s emergency response team co-ordinator John Dyer said that the team would be going out there for assessment.

“The team will be there to assess the damage and come back with a report and we will see the areas as to which we can offer our help,”Mr Dyer said.

“ADRA has already provided 1000 families with food and hygiene kits in Ra province, one of the worst-affected areas. ADRA is planning further distribution of shelter, food and hygiene supplies to thousand more families in the coming weeks,” he said.

Responding to disasters and providing relief to communities is a powerful part of the work that ADRA does.
