Salvation Army Today – 01.07.2019 – Disaster Response in Australia
The Salvation Army continues to be at the forefront of relief efforts across Australia. With The Salvation Army active in fire zones across several states, a national response is being coordinated by the Strategic Emergency and Disaster Management team. General Manager Major Topher Holland said the emergency response was now involving all expressions of The Salvation Army.
“The Emergency and Disaster Management team is facilitating, but we are working alongside the corps and the local community who are doing amazing work.” Due to the incredible need around Australia, The Salvation Army has begun deploying rotating international and interstate teams to reinforce local volunteers. Salvation Army volunteers continue to serve in impacted communities around the country, providing food and water to fire crews and evacuees, as well as practical and emotional support at evacuation centers.
