In this section of the website, we describe how the World Subud Association (WSA) provides support for different aspects of Subud life.
First, individual members request assistance in the practice of the latihan, and for this purpose the WSA appoints and funds helpers with an international coverage.

Second, WSA member national organizations help each other through their zonal networks, and the WSA executive also provides financial and other support for the development of national organizations and their activities.
Third, the WSA aims to nurture and strengthen the global Subud community. In addition to world congresses and international gatherings, the WSA provides newsletters, networking and many other forms of communication. This includes support for the community of younger Sudud members.
Fourth, the WSA aids individuals and their projects. Subud members with emergency needs can apply to the WSA for assistance (see Care Support), and especially through the programs of the affiliates and the MSF, the international organization facilitates and supports members’ initiatives and projects.
