A mobile service unit sponsored by the Adventist Development and Relief Agency (ADRA) in Brazil reached four years serving the needy on June 26, 2020. During those four years, the service trailer has served more than 20,000 people, organization leaders said.
Launched in 2016 as a project to assist communities affected by disasters, it has been on the ground to help victims of natural disasters across the country, including landslides in São Paulo. More recently, it has underpinned the agency’s efforts against COVID-19.
During its four years in operation, ADRA’s unit has visited more than 40 cities, served more than 107,000 meals and help wash 245,000 pounds (111 tonnes) of clothes.
