Camellia issue


I was wondering if anyone could tell me what might be wrong with a Camellia plant in my moms garden, i got my sister to take some photos,  they said that it looks like all the new growth is dying.
Any help much appreciated.

    I can see a bit of damage to a few young leaves, but that may just be due to the sudden early warm weather that has helped to make the shrub grow very quickly in a short space of time. New leaves are vulnerable to harsh winds and sensitive to cold night temperatures. Many of those leaves will settle down and mature to a green colour. Any damaged leaves could be pruned out.

    I'll tell mom to prune out the damaged leaves and leave the rest to hopefully green up.
    Thank you for your help.
