Hubaal Relief Development Organization (HURDO) is local NGO, was founded in  Hiran region, Somalia by local Somali intellectuals and Diaspora Somali community members. The purpose is to provide sustainable livelihoods intervention opportunities to support the most vulnerable communities both in the urban and rural areas of South-Central Somalia consequently will have access to better education, adequate primary healthcare, and employment opportunities, respect the ideals of human rights, peace, good-governance and eventually improved sustainable community development.

The organization is registered under the Somali Interior Ministry in the Department of Humanitarian Affairs.

Subsequent to series of consultative meetings in Beletwiene and out of the town, the founders responded to the urgent need of Somali people and contributed into the emergency humanitarian crisis and development of their country rehabilitation and reconstruction after years of destructive conflicts and successive droughts and famines which led to the total collapse of socio-economic and political institutions.

The vulnerable communities in HIRSHABELE targeted areas and others in general live in extremely poor and under-developed conditions. Their livelihoods are broadly based on subsistence farming and pastoralist with limited opportunity to earn wages.The predominant livelihood systems are:

  • Pastoralist
  • Agro- pastoralist
  • Agriculturalist: agriculture based livelih
  • Fishing
  • Urban Residents and IDPs:

Successive conflicts, droughts and famine had eroded the livelihood scoping mechanisms of these communities. The negative occurrences instigated a huge number of civilian population displaced internally and refugees’ camps in neighboring countries.

HURDO corresponds to the existing international and national humanitarian and development strategies.
