Armée du Salut (Salvation Army)

Tuesday 19 August 2014

The Salvation Army (SA) has been in France since 1881, and is dedicated holistically to "the person" in that SA missions are both spiritual and temporal. These two objectives are complementary and indivisible. The French and Belgian SA joined forces in 2009. The French SA benefits from their experience and skills (e.g. in the shelter for refugees in Brussels) in fighting against trafficking in human beings.

Every year in September, a public awareness campaign invites prayer for human victims of trafficking, especially in our posts (parishes). This invitation is international, as the SA works in 126 countries. This network is very useful because it allows us to keep in touch with colleagues already committed and available to help on the ground in different countries.

Both legal entities, the Foundation and the congregation, work with common values. In each of the 17 Accommodation and Social Reintegration (CHRS) Foundation centers, a place is reserved for those who have been exploited. Many services are offered at the Centers for youth (eg, Mulhouse and Strasbourg). In addition, local work is conducted in our posts, always with the desire to alleviate suffering without discrimination and to give each person their dignity.
