As of today, June 1, The Salvation Army is officially serving in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), bringing the total number of nations in which we operate to 121.
The Salvation Army is developing relationships with members of the government, diplomatic and legal communities in the UAE. Together with the formation of an advisory board, these steps will help ensure that The Salvation Army becomes part of daily life in the Middle East.
Less than two years ago The Salvation Army began its work in nearby Kuwait. Before the UAE, the most recent nation to which the Army expanded its work was Nicaragua.We’re encouraged by the growing opportunities we have to serve those in need all over the world!
