The Salvation Army made its entrance to Malaya in July, 1938. Adjutant Frederick Harvey set up the first Army centre in a vacated YMCA building in Penang. He went on to establish a free school on the island for hundreds of poor children, building upon William Booth’s mission to break cycles of poverty. Over the next ten years the The Salvation Army opened up corps and children’s homes 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 continued its residential care work with young people and has developed a range of services such as homes for the elderly, day care centres, kindergartens and community service centres.
