Our history

Since 1999, we have helped people grappling with the toughest hardships survive — and then thrive. That’s the heart of our approach: We help communities turn crisis into opportunity. Throughout our history, RODHA has demonstrated innovation, timeliness and the ability to adapt quickly to changing realities.

2016: Today, El Ruhama is working in 6 States in Sudan to help people recover from disasters, build stronger communities and find their own solutions to poverty. The agency consistently ranks as one of Sudanese most effective and efficient charitable organizations. Over the last five years, more than 88 percent of resources have been allocated directly to programs that help families turn crisis into opportunity in some of the Sudan’s toughest places.
