Emergency convoyEmergencies and disasters come in many shapes and sizes. Some, like the global COVID-19 pandemic, the earthquakes in Haiti 2010, Japan 2011 in Nepal in 2015 or Cyclone Haiyan in the Philippines take centre stage in world media attention. Other emergencies touch the lives of thousands yet appear to go unnoticed.

However, one thread runs though many of these events – the response of Salvation Army Emergency Services.
