Weiterstadt, Darmstadt / Germany, January 7, 2013. [APD-CH]. "It is not difficult for me to retire from the management of ADRA Germany because I know that my successor Christian will meet the challenges of the international ADRA network ", declared the former director of ADRA Germany, Erich Lischek. He is leaving after organizing and developing ADRA since 1986. "We have learned to join forces in major disasters. I am grateful that I was allowed to support this Aid Organisation. "

In 1987, Pastor Lischek (left) founded ADRA Germany in Darmstadt, starting with only a part-time secretary. At present, ADRA has a permanent staff of 28 people and ten volunteers in the office of Weiterstadt, close to Darmstadt. The charity also offers an apprenticeship in office communication.
Günther Machel, Chairman of the ADRA board, thanked Erich Lischek, "From a modest beginning Adra has become a major company. Lischek has shaped ADRA Germany and he will continue to cooperate

as managing director of the ADRA Foundation”.
Christian Molke (right) is the new ADRA director, starting January 2013. He has previously headed the Adventist Church in the regions of Hessen, Rheinland-Pfalz and Saarland, with 65 communities, 4,600 baptized Adventists members and 34 pastors. Since mid-2012, he has been training for his new office.
ADRA Germany is part of the global network of ADRA International, connecting 120 countries and offices. It is one of the ten largest global relief agencies. It is committed to projects of development, cooperation and emergency aid. ADRA Germany is a member of the Joint Welfare Association and co-founder of the Association for Development & Cooperation of NGOs (VENRO), the "Relief Germany" and "Together for Africa".
It carries out projects in food security, health, education, income support through small loans and disaster relief on four continents.
In addition, every year as part of 'Weltwärts-project' ADRA Germany sends 15 to 16 volunteers to support projects in Albania, Moldova, Tanzania, Kenya, Mexico, Costa Rica and India. For more information about ADRA, check the web site at www.adra.de.
