The Adventist Development and Relief Agency (ADRA) has responded to the needs of those impacted by this week’s flooding emergency in northern Victoria, Australia.
Earlier today an ADRA team headed to the townships of Echuca and Rochester with 2.5 tonnes of supplies to support the flood relief efforts. The truck was filled with non-perishable items, toiletries from the ADRA Op Shop Boronia, and fresh produce provided by SecondBite.
During the drop-off the ADRA team learned that Echuca Neighbourhood House was in desperate need of supplies. Together with donations received from the nearby town of Moama, ADRA was able to help restock Echuca Neighbourhood House so they could continue to serve their community.
ADRA and the Echuca Seventh-day Adventist Church have been supporting Echuca Neighbourhood House with weekly food donations for over four years.
“Thank you so much to ADRA Australia for the very generous donation towards our food bank and flood relief services,” said Sarah from Echuca Neighbourhood House. “Without the support of ADRA I don’t actually know where we’d be right now.”
