Volunteer Minister Michaela sent us an email giving a glipmse of what it is like there and what she and the other volunteers are doing:
Scientology Volunteer Ministers from all over the world continue to arrive in Haiti to do whatever is needed to help the people of this country. Their transport has been made possible by the donations, large and small, of many Scientologists who are members of the International Association of Scientologists.
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.
