In response to our calling from God, The Salvation Army has an active and vibrant outreach, whether through its faith communities or its community work. Thousands of people – ranging in age from new-born to the elderly – depend on the outreach of The Salvation Army, through soup kitchens, homes for children, rehabilitation centres, or home-based care for the sick and elderly, to mention some of the ways in which we care for people. Without the support of The Salvation Army, life would be that much more difficult and sometimes unbearable for many of them.
In order to provide this support, however, The Salvation Army depends on the generosity of members of the public whose donations enable us to continue our ministry. There are a number of ways in which you can support The Salvation Army:
