About us

Humanitarian Initiative Just Relief Aid (HIJRA) is an African, independent, humanitarian organization focused on providing lifesaving assistance to the most vulnerable in South Central Somalia and Kenya. HIJRA was established in Somalia to address the needs of the famine victims in 1992 and has been working to provide WASH, Livelihoods and Health interventions in Mogadishu and Lower Shabelle ever since.

HIJRA currently has 80 staff members comprised of Doctors, Nurses, Logisticians, Hygiene Promoters and Administrative experts directly implementing programs on the ground. HIJRA is one of the very few NGOs presently operating in South Central Somalia to address the needs of the displaced.

As one of the largest actors on the ground in Mogadishu and Lower Shabelle, HIJRA is now working to address the immediate needs of 350,000 famine affected IDP’s. Our teams work to support 287,000 in WASH, 12,000 in livelihoods and 160,000 in Health. HIJRA partners with OXFAM, WHO and receives support via DFID, CIDA and The Common Humanitarian Fund (CHF) managed by OCHA
