Our Motto

Justice. Compassion. Love.

We are the global humanitarian arm of the Seventh-day Adventist Church—part of the 20-million strong Adventist community, with hundreds of thousands of churches globally and the world’s largest integrated healthcare and education network.

We deliver relief and development assistance to individuals allover Tanzania—regardless of their political affiliation, gender, or religious association.
