Typhoon Haiyan: How to Help

Philippines: Aid agencies face numerous challenges

Members of CAMA (Compassion and Mercy Associates), the relief and Development arm of The Alliance, are en route to the Philippines to assess the damage caused by Typhoon Haiyan and develop a response plan. Several Alliance entities, including CAMA and CAMACOP (the Christian and Missionary Alliance Churches of the Philippines), are partnering with other relief agencies to ensure that those who have suffered loss of loved ones and/or property will find the emotional, physical, financial, and spiritual support needed to rebuild their lives.

Authorities are cautioning people who want to help financially to make sure they are giving through trusted sources.  With disasters often come the potential for corruption and misappropriation of funds.  To ensure that your donations are applied quickly and directly to those who are in the greatest need as a result of Typhoon Haiyan, please make certain that the organization through which you contribute has a track record of stewarding the funds it receives with integrity and proven results.

CAMA will be channeling donations it receives through a trusted, well-established network of Alliance churches and relief partners in the Philippines. CAMA is also a member of the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA).
