A representative of the Brussels Pakistani community spoke of the help the Scientology Volunteer Ministers provided to her people during the 2010 monsoon, the worst flooding in her country’s history.

The Brussels Branch of the Churches of Scientology for Europe honored World Civil Defense Day with an open house and exhibit on the Church’s Volunteer Ministers program. Nearly five years have past since the 2010 monsoon submerged some 20 percent of Pakistan in the worst flooding in that country’s history.

The help of the Scientology Volunteer Ministers made all the difference to the people of the country, according to a representative of the Brussels Pakistani community who spoke at the opening of the Volunteer Ministers exhibition February 26 at the Brussels Branch of the Churches of Scientology for Europe.

The theme of the program was based on the motto of the Scientology Volunteer Ministers—“Something CAN be done about it” and neighbors and members of the civil community and humanitarian and religious associations attended to learn why.

After the ribbon was cut, visitors toured the Church’s Public Information Center where, in videoed interviews, first responders, police and fire department personnel, and community and religious leaders from countries around the globe, spoke of the special services Scientology Volunteer Ministers provided their communities to help people cope and recover from the impact of disasters such as earthquakes, tsunamis, typhoons, volcanoes, floods, bush fires, explosions and terrorist attacks.

Guests also learned of a public service through which anyone can increase their ability to cope with disasters great and small through free online training,  available through the Scientology Volunteer Ministers website. Whether it is a major cataclysm or the kinds of family and personal disasters that can affect us all, this training is geared to accomplish the motto of the Scientology Volunteer Minister—Something Can Be Done About It.

Created by Scientology Founder L. Ron Hubbard in the mid 1970s, the Volunteer Minister program is a broad initiative bringing effective physical and spiritual assistance to anyone, anywhere. Expressly intended for use by Scientologists and non-Scientologists alike, anyone of any culture or creed may train as a Volunteer Minister and use these tools to help their families and communities.  And all are welcome to do so.

Equipped with effective technology to resolve virtually any difficulty, Volunteer Ministers live by the motto: “No matter the problem, something can be done about it.”

To provide more information on this and the other humanitarian initiatives it sponsors, the Church of Scientology International has published a new brochure, Voice for Humanity—Real People, Real Help. To learn more, visit the Scientology website
