GEORGIA STATE SENATOR HONORS SCIENTOLOGY DISASTER RESPONSE TEAM FOR HAITI SERVICE

Georgia State Senator Donzella James presented the Scientology Volunteer Ministers Corps Georgia State Resolution SR998 today the for “selfless service to the nation of Haiti.” The presentation occurred at a meeting of Haiti volunteers at the Church of Scientology Celebrity Centre International.

Georgia State Senator Donzella James presented a resolution to the international director of the Scientology Volunteer Ministers Corps in Los Angeles Saturday, acknowledging the group’s Haiti Disaster Response.
Acknowledging the Volunteer Ministers that recently returned from disaster relief service in Haiti, Senator James said “On January 12th the earth opened up and swallowed Port-au-Prince and other parts of Haiti. I have been to Haiti and I saw the poverty.  I thought nothing could be worse.  But you helped when it was even worse than I could ever imagine. You did what you could, unselfishly.”

Some 250 Volunteer Ministers have helped in Haiti, with 100 currently on the ground, providing logistics support for medical teams in Port-au-Prince General Hospital and the University of Miami Hospital tent.

The international director of the Scientology Volunteer Ministers Corps, Ms. Maria Reyher, announced the next phase of Scientology Haiti Disaster Response—a new base that will enable the volunteers to work through the rainy season.

The Scientology Volunteer Ministers Corps is an embracive program of the Church of Scientology that provides community service, disaster relief and emergency response. Created more than 30 years ago by Scientology Founder L. Ron Hubbard, the program has expanded to more than 200,000 Volunteer Ministers worldwide who have served at 187 disaster sites.
