The Salvation Army is a Christian church known for its thrift stores and charity work. It is an international movement that works in over 120 countries. It was founded in 1865 in the United Kingdom by William Booth and his wife Catherine as the north London Christian Mission and with a quasi-military structure. As of 22 May 2012 the Salvation Army operates in 125 countries and provides services in 175 different languages. The Salvation Army is one of the world's largest providers of social aid, with expenditures including operating costs of $2.6 billion in 2004, helping more than 32 million people in the U.S. alone. In addition to community centers and disaster relief, the organization does work in refugee camps, especially among displaced people in Africa.
