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.
New on-the-ground report from photographer Brad, as of noon today.
