Family Self Support (International) Important to CAM Canada is the goal of helping Christian families support themselves, rather than depend on material aid. In Romania, Ukraine, and some other countries, this program provides a means of income to individuals and families. The funds from this program help people purchase a plot of land, a horse and wagon, a cow or other livestock, or tools and equipment. This program has been very successful in helping people start a small repair or manufacturing business, or a commercial greenhouse operation. When the recipients of this program have established a profitable venture, they then also have the opportunity to help other needy people in their communities.
