Generosity flourishes as ADRA breaks record
2 August, 2017
Generous donors have contributed to ADRA Australia receiving its largest ever total during the agency’s end-of-financial year appeal, meaning thousands of people will be able to flourish.
The total amount donated tallied $996,758, just short of the $1 million target.
ADRA Australia chief executive Mark Webster described the final figure as “incredible”.
“Such an amazing result means thousands more people will flourish in Australia and overseas,” Mr Webster said.
ADRA’s campaign highlighted projects improving food security and drought resilience in Africa.
“Your generosity will empower more farmers like Florence and Esau to learn new agriculture techniques to adapt to a changing climate and grow enough healthy food for their families.
“To those who gave generously, thank you so much. The impacts of your gift will be felt for generations to come,” Mr Webster said.
The total received this year exceeded last year’s figure by more than $40,000.
