|CAM worker on the cover of Christianity Today|
Like its older sister organization, Mennonite Central Committee, based in Akron, Pennsylvania, it reaches out to needy people all around the globe. Last year CAM distributed approximately 15 million pounds of food, clothing, medicines, seeds, Bibles, Bible story books, and other Christian literature, according to their website. Their annual budget has reached nearly $100 million.
Countless volunteers donate their time to the work of the organization year round, and their fundraising and administrative costs represent only 2.4% of their total outlays. Their CEO's salary is very modest by most standards, paid in part by CAM's for-profit publishing side of its operation.
This is an amazing organization, led by a dedicated group of people administering aid projects in nearly every major hotspot in the world.
