Hydrocephalus is an abnormality that causes excess water to accumulate in the brain which can lead to blindness and death. SOMCARE has helped numerous children with this congenital illness receive life saving surgery and improve their quality of life. Thank you for your continuous support! SOMCARE

Known medically as hydrocephalus, water in the brain is an abnormal build-up of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) in the ventricles of the brain. The fluid is often under increased pressure and can compress, and damage the brain causing blindness and even death.

Normal pressure hydrocephalus (NPH) can also occur due to a gradual blockage of the CSF drainage pathways in the brain. Although the ventricles enlarge, the pressure of the CSF remains within normal range.

If you would like to donate to this and other causes, please contact Somcare office at Somcare@somcare.org, or representative agents in North America or Europe.

Donations can also be made at Dahabshil money transfer account # HRG-D-15315 without a service charge.

The Holy Quran says: “If you save one life, it is like you saved the whole Humanity”

Together, we can bring help and hope to Somalia.



Thank you!

About Us

Somali American Healthcare Foundation (SOMCare) is a Not For Profit Organization that is devoted to bringing life saving medical care to the most vulnerable people and medically challenging cases in Somalia.

SOMCARE began its work in 2006 with the heart touching incident of a 7-year-old Somali girl that raped and left both physically and psychologically devastated and with no access to medical care. Abdi Maahaay (Founder and Executive Director of SOMCare) and his wife Sahra were touched by this news; they immediately took action by contacting people and organizations around Minnesota.
