Looking Back on the Past Ten Years of the Volunteer Ministers Movement—2011

Christchurch, New Zealand — February 2011: Volunteer Ministers distributed 14 tons of food and supplies and helped more than 21,000 after the earthquake.

The Scientology Volunteer Ministers who served at Ground Zero in the months following 9/11 set a standard for disaster response and inspired a movement that carried forward for the past decade.  Here is an overview of the work of Scientology Volunteer Ministers so far in 2011.

Scientology Volunteer Ministers Respond to New Zealand Earthquake

Following the 7.1 earthquake, mounds of toxic silt contaminated the streets of Christchurch.

The 7.1 earthquake shook Christchurch hours before dawn in New Zealand’s second largest city. Thousands of homes experienced power, water and sewage shutoffs, and many of the city’s buildings were reduced to rubble, including those in downtown and suburban areas. 

The Scientology Volunteer Ministers immediately arrived on the scene to help in whatever capacity was needed.
