The Ca’miya Fund was established to help families who are financially unable to bury their child. No family should have to face the devastation and heartache of losing a child and then not being able to bury their child. No family should have to go through the pain of their child being held in a morgue simply because of a lack of money. Since this fund was started in 2006 we have helped many families with burial expenses so that they may have some peace of mind during their final goodbye and tribute to their child.
We share this with you because if you have contributed . . . then you have helped a family in their time of great need.
