Who We Are
Humanitarian Initiative Just Relief Aid (HIJRA), is a humanitarian organization that aims to positively contribute towards improving the living standards and conditions of those adversely affected by disasters and conflict in the greater Horn of Africa.
Our Initial program components were set-up and designed to include free food distribution, food-for-work, and the distribution of Non-Food-Items. As the dynamics of our operating environment evolved from a situation of development one to emergency so has our focus. Today we work to implement emergency interventions through short-term resilience focused projects such as community based education, water, sanitation, livelihoods and healthcare services.
Together with our international partners, HIJRA has successfully implemented dozens of lifesaving projects. Projects implemented over the years include the construction of water storage and sanitation facilities, pit latrines, cash relief, distribution of NFI's and the management/renovation of Healthcare facilities.
We attribute our program success to lasting relations with communities, beneficiaries and other stakeholders whom share our goal of delivering timely and relevant programming.
