During times of disaster The Salvation Army works closely with NEMA, the Department of Social Services and other churches, agencies and NGOs to provide relief supplies and rehabilitation materials to those affected. The Army provides an abundance of counsel and hope, too. The Army in The Bahamas also networks with its Caribbean and international offices to source and supply the goods, materials and humanpower needed in the event major hurricanes and other catastrophes occur.
“While women weep, as they do now, I’ll fight;
while children go hungry, as they do now I’ll fight;
while men go to prison, in and out, in and out, as they do now, I’ll fight;
while there is a drunkard left, while there is a poor lost girl upon the streets,
while there remains one dark soul without the light of God, I’ll fight,
I’ll fight to the very end!”
Founder of The Salvation Army, in his final public address in 1912.
