Salvation Army Relief for Afghani Refugees

5 December 2001

Salvation Army Relief for Afghani Refugees

The Salvation Army in Pakistan has launched a programme to provide assistance to Afghan refugees in the border city of Peshwar. Thousands of refugees not living in established camps will be assisted, many are sick or injured, and the Army in Pakistan is doing all they can with the resources at their disposal. The programme will be expanded as further funds become available.

Donations can be made to The Salvation Army by phoning our credit card donation line 0800 53 00 00.
