ADRA is one of the oldest, most established non-governmental organizations working in the country. Given their excellent reputation, ADRA Myanmar has had permission to work in many areas of the country where other organizations have not.
ADRA Canada began assisting Myanmar in 1990. Over the years we have helped in sectors of food security, health, water and sanitation, assistance with internally displaced peoples and support for the Karen refugees who escaped to Thailand.
When Cyclone Nargis devastated the nation in 2008, ADRA was able to offer quick, life-saving assistance.
Today ADRA Canada continues to support programs of relief and assistance for the people of Myanmar.
