Salvation Army Helps Fight the Flu Bug

Categories: Blog

According to the Public Health Agency of Canada, influenza affects 10 to 25% of Canadians each year.

In some communities, The Salvation Army, in partnership with local health authorities, is playing an active role in promoting good health and preventing the spread of the seasonal flu.

Salvation Army centres are opening their doors, making it easier for people to get inoculated. For vulnerable people, such as those living in homeless shelters, seniors, or those with limited access to nutritious food, the flu can be deadly. The Salvation Army is happy to further its commitment to meet human needs, reach out to others and care for them.
