“CAMA” stands for Compassion and Mercy Associates. “Services” refers to a variety of relief and development ministries that flesh out the good news of God’s love for people—body and soul. Combined, the two words refer to compassionate servants ministering to people in crisis situations through word and deed.
CAMA Services began as an outreach to refugees fleeing the horrors of the Indochina conflict in 1972. Through camps in Thailand serving Vietnamese, Laotian and Cambodian refugees, CAMA staff provided food, clothing, medical care, job training and a verbal witness to the truth that God’s Son died and rose again. CAMA’s outreach meets the needs of the whole person—spiritual and physical.
