$234,873 raised to date for Typhoon Haiyan Relief

The following was adapted from a report by Mike Sohm, president of Compassion and Mercy Associates (CAMA), the relief and development arm of The Alliance.

Recently, former CAMA president Phil Skellie, along with CAMA staff member Mark Jones and consultant Matt Will, met with leaders from CAMACOP (the Christian and Missionary Alliance Churches of the Philippines). They visited several affected locations and developed a response plan.

The devastation was overwhelming to witness. One sentence from their report stood out: “As of December 6, there are 15 million people affected, 4 million people displaced, 1.2 million houses destroyed or damaged, 5,759 reported dead, and 1779 missing.”

Immediate aid was given, and the focus will now shift to long-term recovery. Thus far, $234,873.10 has been received for Typhoon Haiyan relief. CAMA and CAMACOP extend their heartfelt gratitude to all who have given sacrificially to help those affected to recover and rebuild. The CAMA Web site will contain updates on projects and plans that we will fund in partnership with the C&MA of Canada, CAMACOP, and other local partners.
