History of Nomadicare

In 1994, Sas Carey, RN traveled for the first time to Mongolia, where she discovered her life's passion, working with the nomadic people who inhabited the rugged landscape of this area. Drawing on her nursing background, she was first led to work with them in the area of healthcare, which was severely lacking.

After working with the nomads and reindeer herders for over two decades, she had developed close relationships with them. They opened their hearts and lives to her and the focus of her work shifted from healthcare to documenting a threatened lifestyle. 

Sas founded Nomadicare, Inc. in 2010 as non-profit with the 501(c)(3) fiscal agent Ecologia in order to gather support and resources so she could continue her work in healthcare and documentation. She has produced and directed three feature documentaries: Gobi Women's Song, Ceremony, and Mirgration, and written a book, Reindeer Herder's in my Heart.

The mission of Nomadicare is to support and preserve traditional Mongolian nomadic culture through healthcare, films, and stories.
