ADRA Somalia has been operating in Somalia since 1992 implementing emergency relief and development interventions in different sectors. Since then, ADRA has managed over 50 projects funded by different donors in 8 sectors namely: water; primary health care; education; food security; infrastructure; institutional capacity building; micro-enterprise development and emergency response interventions. The projects have covered Middle Shabelle, Galgadud, Southern Mudug, Hiran, Bakol, Bay, Gedo, Puntland and Somaliland regions of Somalia. The initial interventions were in emergency and relief work. Later, rehabilitation and development interventions were also started in health, water, education, road development, institutional capacity-building and food security. Expansion of project activities is dictated by factors such as community needs, security and the donor policy.


ADRA Somalia is a faith based humanitarian agency that is committed to its core values, enabling positive changes and building capacities of the communities through development and relief interventions and working with established local and external networks and partnerships.
