Who We Are
Umoja Operation Compassion Society of British Columbia is a charitable organization (88642 5909 RR 0001) formed in 2002 to work with low income immigrants and refugees living in Surrey, BC. Our society seeks to help promote unity, respect, and dignity amongst minority immigrants and refugees.
New immigrants and refugees, can find it difficult to integrate due to obstacles such as poverty, low levels of literacy, unemployment, language barrier, isolation, feelings of hopelessness and depression. Through Umoja Family Services Center, we provide a variety of culturally sensitive programs to help families, children, and youth integrate successfully into their new social environment. Umoja exists to serve those that are in need and to that end fulfills its Vision and Mission.
