The ADRA network contributes towards responding, mitigating and recovery of disasters all over the world. When crisis strikes, urgent resources are ready, and often prepositioned to reach areas in need as quickly as possible through ADRA’s global network and partners. Funds, materials, and personnel are coordinated through ADRA’s country offices nearest to the disaster so plans can be put into action immediately.
We have been forerunners in responding to various disasters that occurred in Sri Lanka over the years including the most significant disasters that happened in recent times such as the tsunami in 2004, floods in 2017 and the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020. We ensure that timely assistance is delivered to those affected through provision of required resources such as relief kits, hygiene kits, back to school kits and kitchen kits designed under SPHERE standards.
Through the initial response for COVID-19 we assisted almost 530,000 beneficiary partners in 2020.
