The ADRA Appeal is the main source of funding for ADRA community projects in Australia. Through ADRA, local churches take on initiatives such as food pantries, community gardens and emergency relief to help those in the community who would otherwise fall through the cracks. When accessing these services, those receiving assistance also find comfort in the companionship of ADRA and church volunteers, creating a stronger sense of belonging within their community. “Let Love Shine” this ADRA Appeal and help give someone the support they need to heal and rebuild their lives.
This year we have arranged for a number of COVID-safe activities to help you engage your local community while raising funds for ADRA’s life changing projects in your own backyard and around the world. Thank you!

For as long as Debbie can remember, drugs dictated her life. “I was a drug addict for 48 years,” Debbie says. “I was always rejected from society, being a heroin addict, bikie, gangsta, whatever you wanted to label me.”
During this time, Debbie and her family experienced periods of homelessness, and money was scarce. But two years ago, Debbie broke her addiction. She began looking for a support network and started volunteering with ADRA in Gatton.
Volunteering for ADRA not only gave Debbie purpose, it gave her a sense of belonging. “It’s the first time in my life that I’ve been in a community,” Debbie says. “And I get respect from people.”
“Debbie [is] amazing,” says Pr Darryl Groves, the manager of ADRA in Gatton. “[She’s] such an asset to our project and yeah, people like that…we wouldn’t be able to operate without them.”
