Scientology Volunteer Ministers Awarded City Key for Work in Haiti
The group has also transported more than 450 medical professionals to Haite since January 12, when a magnitude 7.0 earthquake struck the country, killing over 200,000 and injuring a further 300,000.
Councilperson John Patrick Julien presented the award on behalf of the city’s Mayor, Myron Rosner, to Church of Scientology representative Pat Harney. On hand to express their appreciation to the volunteers were Haitian Relief Task Force and Founder of Legal Protection of America, Marie Yolaine Ferdilus, former Florida State Representative and U.S. Congressional candidate Phillip Brutus, Florida House of Representatives candidate Daphne D. Campbell and the Executive Director of the Haitian American Women Association, Marleine Bastien.
The ceremony took place at the Miami River docks where the Scientology Volunteer Ministers are currently loading more than 165 tons of aid supplies on a former US Coast Guard Ship, the Hornbeam, to go to Haiti.
