Many have asked how they can learn more about the effects of Typhoon Haiyan and how it has impacted Alliance churches in the Philippians. Visit the CAMA services web site at http://camaservices.org/urgent/typhoon-haiyan-relief.php for the most recent updates. At this time dollars are the greatest need. CAMA services has already sent $10,000 for initial help. The Alliance church in the Philippines are assessing how they should best assist the
overwhelming needs. Very soon they will make known what continuing help is needed. CAMA services, in the name of Jesus, partners with other like-minded agencies bringing assistance to suffering people in their time of great need.
