Compassion for Mocoa, Colombia
Earlier this year heavy rains poured on the citizens of Mocoa, Colombia. The resulting mudslides killed over 300 people. More than 5,000 people lost their loved ones, their homes, or their businesses.
The devastation directly impacted our Alliance family. Three members of the Mocoa Alliance church lost their lives and nine families lost their homes and belongings.
In partnership with the local and national Alliance church, we are moving forward with a project to complete the rebuilding of five homes destroyed by mudslides. Through the CAMA Disaster Relief Fund, we will provide $5000 per house to finish the interiors, while the Colombian government will cover the basic costs of the exteriors. By giving today, you can partner with our Alliance family to rebuild these homes.
“The approach was designed by Colombians for Colombians and will be led by Colombians, so we expect the long-term impact to be significant,” says Brian Burns, CAMA’s project manager.
Will you join us in this project to bring stability back to five families and, through compassion, extend the impact of the local church and advance the cause of Christ?
