Welcome to Zomi Association USA.

Zomi Association of USA is one of many Zomi Associations; making up the largest Zomi community organization outside of Burma. It was first founded as Zomi Association of Malaysia (ZAM) in 2006 by persecuted Zomi, who are seeking refugee statuses through UNHCR in Kuala Lumpur. The organization is now established in Malaysia, Australia, Japan, New Zealand, European Union and the United States. The organization membership is growing worldwide.

Zomi have been seeking refuge in USA primarily in the last five years from Burma’s ruling junta due to religious and racial persecution. Many have come from refugee camps in Thailand, Malaysia and India, and are seeking a new life here in America.
