Hello Family and Friends,

My name is Hussein Abdullahi and I currently live in Seattle Washington. I was born in Somalia and raised in Kenya as a refugee for many years in the hot and sunny Dadaab refugee camps and moved to the United States for a better life and opportunity with my family. I always wanted to create a non-profit and help poor people in Africa where I came from in East Africa because I strongly believe that everyone has a role in society and you just have to know your role in your community. I also strongly believe that building a social capital unites our communities for a better future.

I went back to Dadaab refugee camps in Kenya in May 2015 and came back in September 2015. I was in Dadaab in four consecutive months and as I lived and stayed in Dadaab refugee camps in Northeastern Kenya, I have realized that everyday thousands of Somali refugees are coming for Somalia in search of safety and better life. Looking at those new comers coming from far places in Somalia that are from my own kind that really in need of UN mandate looking for basic needs food, water and shelter. That moment changed me and I felt that I should take my role and help the helpless people in East Africa.

I am the founder of the International Development & Humanitarian Organization (IDHO). The organization was recently established in January, 2016 and is still a work in progress. To give you little bit information about IDHO is a humanity organization. IDHO is an international humanitarian non-profit & non-governmental organization that is dedicated to working in third-world countries to implement and supply the basic human necessities for the poor through self-help activities, to challenge education, create a sustainable environment and involve anyone interested regarding both humanitarian and development issues.  Our mission is to provide the essentials of basic educational and healthcare services to the Horn of Africa to bring sustainability in which all Africans can thrive.

At this particular moment, trying to apply for the Washington Business License for the organization and then register the nonprofit 501 c 3 with the IRS. I recently got an address for the organization and an office space. IDHO will be providing humanitarian aid in the Horn of Africa, improving education system & depending on the funds we get build schools in rural areas, providing healthcare services. IDHO will also implement pure water for poor people to drink and providing sanitation services. The organization will focus on women and young girls because women and young girls are neglected and suffer a lot. Together with our partners and global ambassadors we will make sure that they get their basic human necessities of life to reach their full potential and promote the progress of humanity.

Areas where the organization is going to work is as follows; Eastern Ethiopia in the Somali region, Southern Somalia in Jubbaland State and as well Northeastern part of Kenya in Dadaab refugee camps. These are priority key areas where the organization is work and provide humanitarian, social and development services. Most of these areas are desert and lack of humanitarian agencies due to post-conflict zones. People who live in Eastern Ethiopia in the Somali region and Southern Somalia in Jubbaland are vulnerable and susceptible because lack of the basic human necessities such as food, clean water, shelter and most importantly lack of healthcare services.

Family and Friends, with the help from you guys, we will help thousands of East Africans who need our assistance and I personally will make sure that your donations and contributions will go to the right channel by implementing services in the Horn of Africa regions. Any humanitarian, social and development work and services we do will be integral to human progress. Let’s all become ambassadors and philanthropists by making contributions to this phenome organization. Please contact me further
