When I first created the post tag for ADRA (Adventist Development and Relief Agency) I didn’t think I would use it much. Unfortunately, their services are needed for disaster relief once again in the wake of Hurricane Sandy.

Please pray for those affected by this storm in Jamaica, the Dominican Republic, the Caribbean, and the United States.
ADRA Responds to Hurricane Sandy
In the event that donations exceed what is needed for Hurricane Sandy Relief and Rehabilitation, ADRA will redirect funds to other like activities worldwide to help children, women, and men in need.
Hurricane Sandy brought 3 days of devastating rains and winds throughout the Caribbean and the United States. ADRA is providing clean water, food parcels, and blankets to families in some of the worst affected communities in the Dominican Republic where more than 1,200 homes were completely submerged in mud. In Jamaica, ADRA has already distributed blankets and is currently assessing the damages to homes to assist in the rehabilitation efforts.
In the United States, ADRA is working through local partners, to provide household cleaning kits to help deal with the residual effects of flooding, hot meals, warm blankets, and personal care kits. Hurricane Sandy's aftermath is likely to be severe and the scope of it's impact will continue to unfold in the coming days and weeks.
Your support, pooled with other resources, will help us meet the basic needs of those suffering from this disaster.
