In the past five days the Church of Scientology Volunteer Minister corps has mobilized and safely transported more than 350 rescue and medical professionals and volunteer ministers to Haiti. Donations for tons of food and medicine were raised and the supplies were brought into Haiti for distribution, in coordination with the United Nations. Close to 100 Volunteer Ministers took time off jobs and left their families and the comfort of their homes to help people in Haiti. The following photos cover only a part of the many stories of our Scientology Volunteer Minister.
Scientology Volunteer Minister Ellen arrived in Haiti Thursday night. She reports about her first assignment at the General Hospital in Port-au-Prince.
We landed last night at 1 or 2am. We had to get all our cargo from the airplane ourselves. Literally, I climbed into the cargo pit and was the one throwing the things off the airplane. We made an assembly line to receive it all. We went to the hospital today all day long. I was responsible for the team that went to the hospital and we were there from about 11am to 7pm.
Straight news out of the Haitian Embassy in Washington, DC: They need doctors to volunteer to go to Haiti!
Many organizations are working miracles to help Haitian orphans find a new home. Administrative scrambles prevent many of these homeless children to leave Haiti. The orphans in these photos are waiting for a ride on the Volunteer Ministers charter plane that is scheduled to deliver over 150 Scientology Volunteer Ministers and medical personnel to Haiti today and return with exhausted medical personnel and refugees.

Ellen is a bilingual Scientology Volunteer Minister who just arrived in Haiti late last night with the second of our charter planes that brought 168 medical professionals, logistics and tech professionals and Scientology Volunteer Ministers to Haiti.
She told us that she wants to document her trip and work in Haiti on a blog, straight from Haiti! In view of the regular telecommunications breakdowns that are still occuring in Haiti we are well aware of the challenges she will encounter to keep us all updated.
The Church of Scientology has organized a second charter flight to Haiti to take doctors, medical supplies and Volunteer Ministers to the stricken country.The 168-seat aircraft departs from Landmark Aviation Airport in Los Angeles Thursday morning, January 21, stops at Miami International Airport to pick up additional medical personal and Volunteer Minister teams, and continues to Port-au-Prince.
