Keeping familes intact

Ratree and Clifton
Thanks to our generous donors, people who come to us for food parcels, budgeting advice and life skills programmes are able to move on to making positive lifestyle changes.

The Reporter  - Issue 3, 2013

Inside this issue:

  • Living in poverty puts intense and relentless pressures on couples and many relationships don’t survive the strain. Ratree and Clifton sought assistance from The Salvation Army when their finances were in a state of collapse. The most dramatic change in their lives came through our Positive Lifestyle Programme which aims to raise self-awareness. Find out more about how this programme saved their relationship here.
  • Thank you to the generous shoppers at Countdown supermarkets who donated to this year’s Red Shield Appeal.
  • Mark your calendar for a night of fun and entertainment at the Wattie’s Cans Film Festival on Wednesday 13 November. Visit the Wattie’s Cans Film Festival Facebook page for updates about the movies showing and participating theatres.
  • The Salvation Army is an official partner charity of Live Below the Line—an innovative awareness and fundraising campaign that’s making a huge difference in the fight against extreme poverty in poor communities. Find out more about our work overseas and how you can help others find freedom from poverty at
  • For the young adults Tim Malton works with in Wellington, state-of-the-art smart phones or the latest street wear are not what they crave most. What they are seeking is a place to belong and a way to contribute to their community. Find out how The Salvation Army is nurturing these young people and helping them achieve their full potential here.
