The Salvation Army has announced that it is to return to Namibia in November after a 67-year absence from the formerly South African-administered territory. “We feel our caring ministry will make great contributions in such areas as caring for the homeless, the elderly and AIDS, sufferers with special emphasis on children orphaned by the epidemic,” Captain Barry Swartz, the army’s territorial secretary for Southern Africa, told Ecumenical News International by telephone from South Africa.
