Scientology Volunteer Ministers Provide Disaster Relief During Melbourne Fires
Date:2/25/2009

The Church of Scientology Volunteer Ministers of Melbourne, Australia aided firefighters and provided emergency relief to victims of raging wildfires that took an estimated 200 lives.

Melbourne, Australia (PRWEB) February 25, 2009 -- Scientology Volunteer Ministers, a grassroots community service organization, which provides on-site relief for emergencies and natural disasters, rushed to help overtaxed firefighters, police and emergency workers when bushfires broke out in the area around Kinglake and Whittlesea in Victoria, Australia on February 7, 2009.

The fires killed at least 200 and destroyed more than 1,800 homes. Some 5000 people, many of whom are now homeless, were evacuated. The fire also laid waste to 400,000 hectares (988,000 acres) of forests, farms and country towns.

A team of 20 Scientology Volunteer Ministers took on whatever job was needed, providing help to over 3,000 people. Among the Scientology Volunteer Ministers were two chefs who took over running the kitchen that fed some 2,000 people each day. Volunteers organized and ran the frozen and refrigerated food area, handing out drinks and organizing the distribution of donated clothes.

The group also demolished smouldering homes, rebuilt damaged houses and established a "Scientology Volunteers Resource Centre," where team members ensured the Red Cross and other disaster relief agencies on the ground had the supplies they needed to carry on their work.

One of the most important and unique services Volunteer Ministers provided was Scientology assists to help firemen cope with the devastation and gruelling conditions they had to confront. These assists are simple procedures developed by L. Ron Hubbard, founder of the Scientology religion, that help people overcome the emotional and spiritual side of trauma so they can recover fully from injury, stress or shock.
