The Salvation Army made its entrance to Malaya in July, 1938 when Frederick Harvey set up the first centre in a former YMCA building in Penang. He went on to establish a free school on the island for hundreds of poor children, building upon our Founder William Booth's mission to break cycles of poverty. Over the initial few years the Army opened up corps and social programmes in Ipoh, Melaka, Batang Melaka and Kuching.
Today, The Salvation Army in Malaysia has ten corps and a range of social service programmes that provide both spiritual guidance and practical assistance to people in need. The Army has developed its specialised residential care work with young people and has also developed other services such as homes for the elderly, day care centres, kindergartens and community service centres.
