      HOW IT BEGAN 

In 2010 after the Government of Canada recognized CAM as a registered charity their was a mission trip. A couple of members that joined the mission trip had the idea of building our own orphanage. They felt so moved by the Lord that they gave funds that seeded what you see now. Up until now we have rented two places to host the orphans and to run CAM ministry which reaches out with the Gospel and to minister to the physical needs of others; widows, single mothers, and orphans.

CAM is now in the process of constructing a new home, in fact the first floor building is done. The upper floor still requires electrical plumbing and doors as well as painting.

This new building will be a beacon of Gospel; First by being an orphanage as well as a place that will help the older children transition into the community. Second it will be the heart of CAM in Uganda, housing our office where the administration which directs and encourages other ministries, such as the community outreach and weekly feeding program.

 

BUILDING OUR NEW HOME 

In January 2014 the digging for the security fence which was completed in 2015.

The construction of the new building started in February of 2017. The roof went up in September. Now the need is for prayer that the Lord will raise up some new donations for the finishing of building. The need us to raise approximately thirty thousand dollars Canadian to finish up the building.

Please note:The construction was done by hand as you can see from the pictures. The workforce was local so that we might support the local economy. (Picture 4 & 5)

The children were so excited to have their new “Home” that they have visited the site several times and have prayed over it, thanking God, giving God the glory for his provision!

Our prayer is that funds come in so we might move in as soon as possible.
