treatments in primary health; treatment by natural remedies and

Preparedness and Response
ADRA provides immediate relief for the victims of natural disasters,
and catastrophes caused by humans, including long-term assistance
for refugees. This assistance includes medical support, emergency
food, clean water, clothing, shelter and reconstruction of buildings.
Education is one of the key issues to break the vicious cycle of
poverty. ADRA focuses in the education sector mainly on programs
and infrastructure assistance for primary and secondary schools
since the basic requirements of wiping out illiteracy and education
are understood as the 'rights of the children'. These programs deliberately
support the education of girls and women.
Projects of ADRA Swaziland are financed through:
• private donations from individuals
• grants for projects from other relief organisations and
• donations from the Seventh-day Adventist church
• contributions from local partners (project responsibility)
The correct use of the financial means is annually audited by a
certified third party accountant company, Kobla Quashire & Associates
which provides its findings in the yearly audit report.
