For 48 years, in 62 countries, we've walked alongside the vulnerable so they find hope for all of life.

WHO WE ARE

As a wholistic organization of The Alliance, CAMA's mission is to see hurting communities reach their full potential. In working to alleviate suffering and poverty, we invest in local solutions guided by local leaders and local churches. We are committed to extending your deep compassion to suffering communities around the world.

CAMA stands for Compassion and Mercy Associates.
And we pronounce CAMA like "comma," the little special punctuation mark.

OUR HISTORY

In 1972, the Christian and Missionary Alliance established CAMA to meet the overwhelming needs of refugees fleeing Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos. Today, as a specialized structure of Alliance Missions, our staff respond to the needs of people affected by violence, poverty, and disasters. The gospel is at the heart of our relief and development efforts.

... and our story continues.

Thanks to you, hope is flourishing in hundreds of communities.
