Celebrating 10 Years

KOM is celebrating 10 years in 2018!

Since 2008, we’ve been honored to be a part of the community of refugees from Burma as they make their home in Minnesota. Throughout many changes in the past decade, KOM has been a reliable place for thousands of refugees to find help today and plan for a bright future. Your consistent support enables us to innovate our programming as we respond to new challenges and opportunities ahead.

Read about how it all began, challenges over the years, and tremendous accomplishments.

From 2008 to 2018, KOM has grown along with the community of refugees from Burma. In 2009, there were about 3,000 Karen people living in Minnesota. Now, we estimate there to be over 17,000 Karen and other refugees from Burma calling Minnesota home.

The Htee Moo Fund

In Karen, “Htee Moo” is a phrase describing the headwaters of a stream–an everlasting source of water that gives life to those around it.

To celebrate our tenth anniversary, we are launching the Htee Moo Fund to invite you to join us in building a reliable source of support for refugees in Minnesota.

Ta blut doe mah (Thank you very much) for your support for the Karen Organization of Minnesota!
