In a dockside ceremony welcoming the Hornbeam to Miami, North Miami Beach City Council member John Patrick Julien presented the Scientology Volunteer Ministers with the key to the City of North Miami Beach on behalf of Mayor Myron Rosner and a proclamation dedicating a day to Scientology Volunteer Ministers for their work in Haiti.
Also present were Phillip Brutus, former Florida State Representative and current candidate for US Congress; Daphne D. Campbell, RN, Haitian community leader and candidate for the Florida State House of Representatives; Marleine Bastien, executive director and cofounder of Haitian American Women Association and the Haiti Relief Task Force; and Marie Yolaine Ferdilus, co-chair of Haitian Relief Task Force and founder of Legal Protection of America.
Since the January 12 earthquake, the Church of Scientology has transported more than 450 medical professionals and 300 Volunteer Ministers to Haiti. The Scientology Volunteer Ministers continue to provide support to doctors, nurses and emergency medical technicians, deliver food and water to the IDP (Internally Displaced Persons) camps, and help with reconstruction, disaster response training and trauma relief.
