Scientology Volunteer Ministers are serving in Haiti and the Dominican Republic, providing skilled logistical support to aid the earthquake recovery. Supported by individuals and groups in the US, UK, Canada, Germany, France, Italy and elsewhere, Volunteer Ministers provide organizational support to medical teams, enabling the doctors and nurses to treat the injured.
Volunteer Ministers teams provide a wide variety of services, responding to the needs and priorities of the medical teams. The Volunteers organize and establish projects and teams to distribute water and food to patients and doctors, arrange and inventory hospital and medical supplies, sterilize instruments, help move patients between wards - in short, anything needed so doctors and nurses are freed up to provide their lifesaving skills.
The dedicated work of the Volunteer Ministers in Haiti has so far resulted in:
- 286 doctors, nurses and medics transported to Haiti
- 30,400 pounds (15 tons) of medical supplies and food and water transported to Haiti
- Over 28,000 people helped
As has been noted earlier, the purpose of the Scientology Volunteer Ministers is to help, and their motto is: "No matter how bad it is - something can be done about it!".
