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.
