About Us

HUMANE-AID FOR COMMUNITY ORGANIZATION (HACO) is a non-governmental Organization founded by a group of citizens who had similar views on the suffering of the people in the rural areas on 14th September 2014 and was officially registered by the Ministry of Justice, Republic of South Sudan on 17th April 2015 as a National Organization specifically for purposes of Education, General Protection, Health, WASH, SGBV, Food Security & Livelihoods. This was after the catastrophe that was caused by the civil strife that engulfed the Nation in December 2013 and led to family disintegration. The vulnerable groups were most hit because they were separated from their breadwinners. Many sought refuge with their relatives who were equally disadvantaged in terms of basic needs and therefore opinion leaders felt that there was need to begin a joint self help organization to cater for the challenges. It was formed to alleviate the suffering of the vulnerable people in the Republic of South Sudan


The Vision of HACO is to create a free South Sudanese community from hunger and to be socio-economically self-reliant. To serve communities where vulnerable women, youths and men live positive and sustainable lives where child survival and education is a right.
