About Us

Welcome to Haula Website. “Haula” as the name of our organization was adopted from a significant meaning of an ancient community gathering place which was used to conduct community meetings, perform traditional and cultural ritual activities and for making decision on matters important to the community. Essentially, Haula is a parliament where individuals issues and community conflicts were resolved. Haula upto now is considered a sacred place and it continued to be respected and preserved for current and future generations.

Haula was initially formed for the sole purpose uniting all the Didinga and Laarim communities currently living in the United States of America and in Canada. The idea of unity turned into charitable desire to help our people back home in south Sudan. Haula was therefore got formed in 2016 by few members who believed in its cause. 

Majority of Haula members  fled Sudan’s civil war in 1983. The war lasted for over 20 years. Over two millions South Sudanese escaped to the neighboring countries such as, Kenya, Uganda and Ethiopia. The war ended when peace agreement was signed in 2005 between South Sudan’s rebel group and northern Sudan. In 2011, south Sudanese demanded for a referendum and to separate as a new nation. South Sudan independence was attained on September 9th, 201.

Unfortunately, South Sudan plunged into internal conflict in 2013. This led to another massive displacement of south Sudan’s citizens to the neighboring the countries like, Kenya, Ethiopia and Uganda. The conflict created the worst humanitarian crisis and many challenges to those who remained in the country.  This war went on until 2018 when the rivaling groups agreed to sign cessation of hostilities and peace agreement. Even though this peace has been signed and some relative calm has returned to in the country, still communities are experiencing major challenges. The current government has no capacity to deliver the needed services to the people of south Sudan. Important things like Education, Food, Healthcare, and good Roads are hugely unavailable. 

Because of these challenges faced in the country by everyone and including our people where we hailed from, we decided to turn Haula into a charitable organization so that we can offer a small help to our suffering people.  Our people in BUDI county are cut off from all sort of humanitarian supports. Haula strives to become that beacon of hope for the people of BUDI county. 

And because Haula was formed on the premise of kindness which was inspired by Sr. Luise Radlmeier who gave us education and facilitated our resettlement in Canada and USA (Photo here below, may she rest in peace),

we at Haula shall emulate her kindness and giving back to our people back home in South Sudan. He legacy shall lived in our hearts forever.

Our Projects
In order to sustain food supply and improve dietary needs of the people of BUDI county, Haula initiated the program to help local farmers improve their crop yield while discourage bad farming practices. This is done by introducing modern farming methods and providing better seeds that are resilient to climatic conditions through an expert who is more skilled and experience in modern farming. People of BUDI county are subsistence Farmers. Their major crops are: Maize/Corn, Sorghums, Millets, Sesame, Cassava, Sweet Potatoes, Bananas, Irish Potatoes and few variety of vegetables and fruits
To preserve and maintain the Didinga and Laarim culture and tradition to the growing population in foreign countries such as the US, Canada and other western countries like UK and Australia, Haula came up with a program to train Didinga and Laarim language for both children and adults who cannot read and write. This training will be offered through an online platform via Zoom and Youtube Channels.
