Salvation Army Work Opens in Madagascar
General André Cox has approved the official opening of Salvation Army operations on the island of Madagascar, off the east coast of Africa. This development will bring the total number of countries in which The Salvation Army is officially registered to 128.
This decision comes after prolonged exploration into the feasibility of extending the Army's work to the island, and regular discussions in meetings of the International Management Council at International Headquarters in London. A budget for the first three years of operation has been approved and personnel have been identified to oversee the new ministry.
Sunday meetings have been taking place for some months; a Home League (women's ministries) programme is developing, making a great impact on the lives of women in Madagascar; and Salvation Army personnel are involved at a school.
