Projects You Can Do

People in poverty-stricken countries often struggle to find the money for soap, shampoo, sleepers, notebooks, pencils, and even chalk and staplers for the classroom. Putting together kits with basic necessities is one way you can bless needy families and schools. CAM can use thousands of hygiene kits, school kits, and layette bundles to distribute in Haiti, Nicaragua, Romania, Liberia, and other countries.

Comforters, Christian Aid Ministries

Cozy comforters

People in needy countries who experience cold winters appreciate thick comforters to keep them warm during cold, winter nights. A comforter can also be a soft mat for people in Liberia and Nicaragua who don’t have a bed to sleep on.

100,000 comforters could be used!

You can bless a needy family by making a lightweight or heavy comforter in any size. Your finished comforter can be dropped off at any CAM location or shipped to our warehouse in Pennsylvania (see “Shipping Section” below).

You can also help ship your donated comforter overseas for only $2.50. You can fill out the donation form below or you can send your shipping gift to our home office and earmarked “comforter shipping.”

Please use new fabric for comforters.
