Program areas at Christian Aid Ministries
Medicines-For-Multitudes: The Medicines-for-Multitudes program ships and distributes medicines and medical supplies to approximately 380 medical outlets in Eastern Europe, Liberia, Haiti, Nicaragua, El Salvador, and other parts of the world. These outlets include clinics, hospitals, and church pharmacies that provide the free medicines to suffering, needy people. Because generous pharmaceutical companies donate the medicines, CAM can ship and distribute $30 worth of medicines for every dollar given to Medicines-for-Multitudes.Though the items are donated, CAM has procurement fees and shipping costs to bring them to our warehouse in Pennsylvania. The Gifts-that-Grow program covers these costs, enabling CAM to accept more free products for the poor. CAM shipped an estimated wholesale value of $52 million of medicines, vitamins, liquid nutrition, and medical supplies.
Clothing Bundle Project: Each year, this program ships large quantities of quality used clothing and footwear and thousands of cozy comforters to needy families in various parts of the world. The items, donated by generous supporters in the United States, bring joy and relief to people who wonder how they will clothe their families another year. In 2019, clothing was shipped to Nigeria, Moldova, Romania, Jordan, South Sudan, Ukraine, Nicaragua, Syria, Liberia, Tajikistan, and other countries. Every gift of $69 processes, ships, and distributes approximately 125 pounds of clothing, footwear, and comforters.
Other Programs: CAMs food parcel programs reach out to needy families, elderly people, and widows, widowers, or abandoned wives in several countries. CAMs Bibles-For-The-World program makes it possible to translate, print, and distribute Bibles, Bible story books, and other Christian literature. CAMs disaster response services coordinates volunteers to rebuild in natural disaster areas of the United States. Volunteers have donated thousands of hours serving in communities crippled by floods, hurricanes, fires, and tornadoes. CAM has numerous other programs including a child/school sponorship program in Haiti, orphan sponsorship programs, microfinance solutions program, prision ministries, billboard evangelism, seed distribution projects, and various other humanitarian programs.
