Each Manna member contributes monthly an administrative fee of $10, which is used by Christian Care Ministry (CCM) to facilitate the sharing, and a Variable Share Amount (VSA) of $12 per unit elected, which is used to assist others in need. Each unit elected represents up to $2,200 of monthly financial assistance not to exceed 80%.
Sharing is accomplished by communicating the needs of members suffering from eligible disabilities to other members who send their monthly Manna share to CCM. CCM then forwards the total variable share amount (VSA) collected to those members in need. The partial replacement of actual earned income lost due to an illness or injury will be presented to Manna members for sharing for up to 12 months. Up to 80% of the verifiable lost earned income will be presented for sharing. Further, if in a given month the total eligible needs exceed the VSA collected, the needs are shared on a prorated basis.
