Chile: Scientology Volunteer Ministers administer
to earthquake and tsunami victims
From early March on, Scientology Volunteer Ministers have been working with the Red Cross, Chilean Scouts and other organizations in Chile to organize and provide needed aid to the affected areas. Scientology Volunteer Ministers arriving from Venezuela, Argentina and Mexico have joined the teams.
In March and April 2010, Scientology Volunteer Ministers were helping earthquake and tsunami victims in the various campsites around Concepción, Rancagua and the tsunami-damaged port city Talcahuano. Aside from spiritual assistance, basic medical care and distribution of supplies, Scientology Volunteer Ministers continue to work with the Chilean Navy (Armada de Chile) to set up shelters and rebuild homes. A Scientology Volunteer Minister team in the Concepción Province is doing cleanup work, removing rubble from schools and other public buildings to restore public services.
As of May 2010 several teams of Scientology Volunteer Ministers continue to give needed assistance to earthquake and tsunami victims in Chile.
