Developmental relief programs including food, clothing, tools, medicine, etc. Educational programs, including donated books were begun in 1984. ADRA distributes INTERFACE, a quarterly training journal, communicating ideas, reports, and resources to its missions and to other professionals in the development community.
No. Copies Distributed: No exact figures are available. But since 1984 when ADRA began distributing donated books, nearly 3 million books have been shipped. "Sack mail" postage and handling costs are supported by the recipient schools.
Destinations of Shipments: Worldwide through the ADRA network of regional offices and missionaries. Requests for books from abroad must be directed to the nearest overseas ADRA mission; requests sent to the US head-quarters will only be delayed, since they will not be acted upon until an overseas office has considered them.
Kinds of Books Distributed: Educational for kindergarten through high school and medical books for colleges.
