Isuroon is a non-profit organization that provides empowerment, culturally sensitive health education, and advocacy for Somali women living outside of Somalia. Founded in 2010, we operate on the principle that Somali culture emphasizes different values about wellness, medicine, health, and illness than Western medical traditions. We are a community-driven, community-led organization dedicated to educating and facilitating communication between Somali women and Western health care practitioners. We advocate for the safety and efficacy of medical practices within Somali communities locally and globally, and we seek to develop a self-sustaining community to support all Somali women.
We work to educate and empower Somali Women, we strive towards creating a community that provides culturally competent heath care, and we hope create awareness and disparities associated with the sociocultural factors that many Somali women face living in the United States and outside of Somalia.
Education and community engagement is essential to our mission. Here are a few ways that you can take part of our efforts: request a speaker to talk about Heath Issues for Somali Women, attend a workshop to learn more about what we do and how you can volunteer, or donate to help fund all our efforts and events.
All these things will help us to continue to provide current information and resources for the Somali Community. Do you have another way you would like to help? Contact us HERE. We’d like to know what you have in mind. For more information about helping Isuroon, click the button below.
