Scientologist Peter Dunn, from Adelaide, Australia, flew to Haiti in the first days after the earthquake. He is there for the long run. A highly trained Scientologist who has worked as a staff member of the Church of Scientology for 30 years, Dunn’s first task once there was to help in the hospitals providing any needed support for the doctors. With the most immediate medical situations now under control, he is providing one-on-one help using Volunteer Ministers techniques that address trauma, stress and loss. He is also training others.
Myron Kalfoglou, Firefighter and EMT with the Kensington Volunteer Fire Department of Montgomery County, Maryland, is not the kind of man to stand by when people need help. Seeing the devastation caused by the January 12 Haiti earthquake, he contacted the Haitian Embassy in Washington DC, booked a seat on a charter flight sponsored by the Church of Scientology, and on Sunday, February 14, he left for Haiti.
