LET'S END THE SUFFERING
OF OUR PEOPLE
Our mission is to set up an institutional home for our people’s humanitarian endeavour so that, whenever disaster strikes in any form (be it man made or natural, war or persecution, flight or displacement, disease or want), we shall be prepared to respond, to provide relief, and to facilitate rehabilitation. In this way we would like to see to it we intervene in good time to heal the wounds of our nation that is constantly in resistance.
It is therefore our mission to mobilize, harness, and deploy the humanitarian energy of the nation in such a way that we are always prepared to “be there, to say “JIRRA,’for the less fortunate ones among us: the martyrs (and/or their survivors), the wounded, the persecuted (the accused seeking justice and the victim of legal-political justice seeking mercy), the fleeing, the displaced, the refugee, the migrant, and the starved, the sick, and generally the less endowed and/or the less privileged. It is to ensure that we have a system in place for addressing the humanitarian needs of our people.
The most important value that anchors our activities is that of Oromo self-support and economic self-reliance as an aspect of the imperative of self-emancipation. Other values that underpin our work include solidarity with our compatriots, and the common humanity we all share regardless of region, religion, or faction.
Our vision is to see that we, as a nation, shall neither be surprised nor intimidated in the face of recurring humanitarian challenges.It is our vision that none of our needy ones will be left unattended to while we can.
