Salvation Army - Swedish NGO Partner
The Salvation Army is one of our NGO partners in Sweden and is helping us to fight the global water crisis.
The Salvation Army is an integral part of the Christian Church, although distinctive in government and practice. The Army's doctrine follows the mainstream of Christian belief and its articles of faith emphasize God’s saving purposes. Its objects are ‘the advancement of the Christian religion... of education, the relief of poverty, and other charitable objects beneficial to society or the community of mankind as a whole.
The movement, founded in 1865 by William Booth, has spread from London, England, to 119 countries of the world in 2010. Raised to evangelize, the Army spontaneously embarked on schemes for the social betterment of the poor. Such concerns have since developed, wherever the Army operates, in practical, skilled and cost-effective ways. Evolving social services meet endemic needs and specific crises worldwide.
