Today the Scientology Volunteer Ministers were asked to expand their activities in Onagawa, Miyagi Prefecture (see letter below). With almost 6,000 reported dead and 6,675 people still missing, the region of Miyagi heads the list of severely affected areas.

More than 200 additional Volunteer Ministers are preparing to leave for Japan to fulfill the demand for help. However more logistical support is needed and there are many more shelters where we can serve.

Please support the activities on the ground by doing the following:

  1. If you can volunteer in Japan (for at least one month) please download and fill out our application form and email it to us.
  2. If you can't leave for Japan right now, please donate to the IAS. Your help will be very much appreciated.
  3. At this time only very specific material donations are needed. Please contact us at if you have any questions.

To: International Scientology Volunteer Disaster Relief

Thank you for the work the Scientology Volunteer Disaster Relief Team is doing at the shelters in Onagawa Town.

I have heard many disaster victims say they feel good, relaxed, relieved from body pain, and healed from the trauma of this disaster after this group delivered the technology called "Assists" developed by L. Ron Hubbard.

The disaster victims were relieved from mental and physical pain and restored to positive thinking, which are the first steps for recovery of this town.

I would like others to support this group in creating relief for disaster victims.

Please arrange for this group to work in all areas. We request relief and support actions from this group for Onagawa Town and other cities, towns and villages of this region. This is a very reliable group, and they work hard to bring relief in the shelters.

Therefore, I hope that many cities, towns and villages will support them in expanding their activities.

Onagawa Town Disaster
Head of HQ
