Who We Are


Our Background

The history of Najah Relief and Development Organization (NRDO) is a testament to our unwavering commitment to serving the most vulnerable communities in Somalia. It is a story marked by humble beginnings, rapid growth, and an enduring dedication to making a positive impact on the lives of those in need. Here, we provide a detailed account of our journey:


In 2021, NRDO’s journey commenced as a grassroots volunteer initiative, born out of a deep desire to make a meaningful difference in the lives of individuals and families facing adversity in Somalia. Our early days were characterized by small-scale yet heartfelt efforts to provide iftar meals during the holy month of Ramadan and to organize Eid celebrations for those who were unable to afford food and festivities. These initiatives were driven by compassion and a commitment to alleviating the immediate challenges faced by the less fortunate.

The profound impact of our early initiatives became evident as we witnessed the transformative effect on the lives of the needy. It became increasingly clear that there was a pressing need to extend our reach and support to reach more vulnerable populations throughout Somalia.

Expansion and Formalization

In 2022, a significant turning point was reached as NRDO began to receive donations and support from both the Somali diaspora and local businesses. These generous contributions were a testament to the growing recognition of the importance of our work and the impact it had on communities in need.

Buoyed by this outpouring of support and encouraged by the positive response from communities, we embarked on a mission to gain a deeper understanding of the challenges faced by those living in conflict-affected regions of Somalia. In 2023, we conducted comprehensive on-the-ground assessments in areas such as Sool, Sanaag, and Ayn. These assessments revealed the dire humanitarian needs and the urgent requirement for our intervention.

Fueled by a growing demand for support and an unwavering commitment to our mission, NRDO took the momentous step of formalizing our organization. In doing so, we officially established ourselves as a registered non-profit organization. This critical milestone enabled us to systematically reach even more vulnerable individuals and communities while also facilitating strategic partnerships with international donors and agencies.
