Warehouse equips Salvation Army to better serve Haiti
Marks first step in establishing a disaster response program for the country
Croix-des-Bouquets, HAITI (February 6, 2013) - Nearly 60 Salvation Army staff, officers and friends were joined by local government representatives for the dedication of its disaster services warehouse in Santo 8.
The new 500 square meter facility is part of a larger effort to provide disaster and logistics training to The Salvation Army Haiti. It will be the hub of disaster response activity, giving the Army a place to receive and store supplies. In a country prone to hurricane activity, this will increase the Army's capacity to respond to post-disaster needs.
"This warehouse is the first big project for emergency work," said Major Vilo Exantus, Divisional Commander for The Salvation Army Haiti. "And with this project we will be able to serve the whole country," not only in case of emergency but to stock and distribute items to meet other needs such as food distribution for schools according to Major Exantus. read more.....

What a great Congress celebration we had in Kingston, Jamaica led by our beloved General, General Linda Bond. What a fellowship we have had and what great blessings we had received!
While we are overwhelmed at what God has already done through our Army and through us, we are also convinced that God is calling The Salvation Army in the Caribbean to even GREATER THINGS. God has called all of us to accomplish even GREATER THINGS. Jesus said, "I tell you the Truth, anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater things than these because I am going to the Father." John 14:12 read more......
