What's a SAWSO?

The Salvation Army World Services Office (SAWSO) has been providing international assistance in pursuit of its goal of finding lasting solutions to poverty. Particularly, right now, we're invovled in the response to Typhoon Haiyan, helping those families that were affected in any way that we can. Anytime there is an international incident like this, SAWSO will be there. Though the efforts of our wonderful and tireless volunteers, we have been able to provide well over 10 million meals and 600 transitional shelters in response to the 2010 earthquake in Haiti.

The Salvation Army pledges to do the most good with contributions of money, time and resources, evidenced in that 83 cents of every dollar donated are directly allocated to services that assist people in need.
