Horn of Africa Development Assistance (HADA) was first founded in 2009 by concerned Canadians of Somali origin and was revitalized by Canadian youth after the experience of the 2011 droughts in East Africa and Famine in Somalia. In the Somali language, "HADA" translates to "NOW". HADA is committed to making change in the region "NOW", inspired by the slogan "Change is NOW!".
