With the immediate medical emergency over, the Scientology Volunteer Ministers have expanded their delivery of other services. They are concentrating on training the people of Haiti in simple tools to improve conditions in life.
Over the past few weeks Scientology Volunteer Ministers in Haiti have trained more than 8,000 Haitians.
In founding the Scientology Volunteer Ministers program, L. Ron Hubbard published an article called “Religious Influence in Society,” in which he wrote:
“Of course, if one is going to find fault with something, it implies that he wishes to do something about it and would if he could. If one does not like the crime, cruelty, injustice and violence of this society, he can do something about it. He can become a Volunteer Minister and help civilize it, bring it conscience and kindness and love and freedom from travail by instilling into it trust, decency, honesty and tolerance.”
Scientology Volunteer Ministers are providing training in communication skills to Haitian police, Scientology Assists--sometimes known as “spiritual first-aid”--to people in the IDP (internally displaced persons) camps and study technology in schools. While they continue their disaster relief, including bringing food and supplies to camps and orphanages, and with anything else that is needed, by training others in these skills they are giving them tools that will last and help the Haitian people rebuild their country and their lives.
