Times of Suriname - - ENGELS -

The Sal­va­ti­on Ar­my (LDH) will al­so launch its Red Kett­le cam­paign this year,” Ma­jor Vi­li­ce Tho­mas told Ti­mes of Su­ri­na­me. He an­noun­ced that the Red Kett­le cam­paign will com­men­ce in the buil­ding of the Cham­ber of Com­mer­ce and Fac­to­ries on No­vem­ber 5. The ma­jor ho­pes that the pe­o­p­le will lend a hel­ping help by ma­king a do­na­ti­on des­pi­te the cur­rent de­pres­si­on be­cau­se the less for­tu­na­te need all the help they can get. The ma­jor poin­ted out that the Sal­va­ti­on Ar­my hau­led in bet­ween SRD 150,000 and SRD 175,000 last year. “The Sal­va­ti­on Ar­my ho­pes that pe­o­p­le will do­na­te SRD 300,000 in to­tal es­pe­ci­al­ly gi­ven the fact that the­se are dif­fi­cult ti­mes. The pe­o­p­le must stand to­gether and remain strong es­pe­ci­al­ly du­ring the­se dif­fi­cult ti­mes. The pe­o­p­le must sup­port each other and show mo­re lo­ve for one ano­ther,” said Ma­jor Tho­mas who ad­ded that pe­o­p­le should car­ry out mo­re ac­ti­vi­ties that re­qui­re less spen­ding such as plan­ting crops. “I be­lie­ve wit­hout a doubt that the­re will be bet­ter ti­mes. I am awa­re of the cur­rent cri­sis and that mo­re pe­o­p­le will re­quest a Christ­mas par­cel. We will gi­ve the ne­ces­sa­ry sup­port to the pe­o­p­le. Eve­ry­thing that we re­cei­ve from do­nors will be gi­ven back to the pe­o­p­le.” The Sal­va­ti­on Ar­my which star­ted with the Red Kett­le cam­paign in 1924 helps the less for­tu­na­te all over the world. Pe­o­p­le can vo­lun­ta­ri­ly do­na­te goods.”
