Christian Aid Ministries

Christian Aid Ministries (CAM), based in Ephrata, PA, is a para-church organization that provides relief efforts during disasters and in impoverished areas. While CAM is not exclusively a Beachy Amish-Mennonite organization, the Beachy Amish-Mennonites have been instrumental in its growth and ongoing operation. Various conservative groups, including the Amish and conservative Mennonites, support and volunteer in CAM's efforts. CAM efforts circle the globe; volunteers are found in areas devastated by floods, earthquakes, hurricanes, tornadoes, and wildfires.

Work continues outside periods of disaster. CAM volunteers staff and sponsor clinics in rural areas of developing countries, providing donated medicine and supplies. Volunteers also collect and disseminate clothing packs and school kits. With financial donations and gifts in kind, CAM is a multimillion dollar organization with one of the lowest overheads / operating costs of any non-profit organization in North America. Nearly all money and supplies given to CAM goes to field projects.
