Adventist Development & Relief Agency and Maranatha Volunteers InternationalThe object of ADRA's world: Many North Americans live in a protected environment. We want to give them an idea of how other people live in other parts of the world. Here in the Global Village [our display in the GC Session exhibition hall], we have three huts that represent real living conditions in three various areas of the world. We have an Asian Hut, Latin American Hut, and an African Hut. In seeing these living conditions, we hope that people will realize how much they have. We also hope to instill a desire to share with those less fortunate than they around the world.
