Hygiene Kits, Baby Kits, Water and Volunteer Ministers: There is so much needed in the Bahamas

Scientology Volunteer Ministers prepare relief supplies for disaster victims.

I have friends in the Bahamas. I had to go.”
— Peter Erdei, Scientology Volunteer Minister

TAMPA, FLORIDA, US, September 12, 2019 / -- The Scientology Volunteer Ministers (VMs) continued their relief efforts this week in the Bahamas. Joining the few hundred volunteers from other organizations who have made their way to the devastated islands, Clearwater businessmen donned their yellow Scientology VM t-shirts and flew to Freeport, a part of the Bahamas that has seen little other relief. CEO of a 400-man Clearwater business, was the pilot who took his friends to the island along with supplies of water and hygiene kits. On September 11th, Mr. Anderson took three men with him, including Peter Erdei, owner of a Clearwater furniture company, Danan Coleman and Wyatt Brooks. On the 9th of September, he flew seven other volunteers. While back in the VM centers in Clearwater and Tampa, passports and other documents are being gathered for the teams of volunteers who will join their friends in the Bahamas. VMs at the centers also prepare hygiene and baby kits and put out the call for more.

“I have friends in the Bahamas,” Erdei said. “I had to go.” The 6-foot-4 Hungarian native has a family in Clearwater but like all the people who are volunteering in the Bahamas, a few days of discomfort does not compare to what the displaced victims of Hurricane Dorian are experiencing. The VMs got to work immediately helping families in a foster home that had been submerged in 7-feet of water. The VMs removed heavy furniture and other items that the families otherwise were unable to dislodge from the damaged building.

On the 10th of September, seven other VMs left Miami for Freeport on a boat with pallets of water, over a thousand hygiene Kits, three tents, nine cans of 5-gallon gas canisters and hundreds of boxes of dried and canned foods. They joined the assessment VM team at the community center in Freeport.

“This work will continue until there is some stability and relief,” said Martha Stilson, Scientology Volunteer Minister assisting the relief team at the Church of Scientology Tampa. For more information on how you can help contact @volunteersministertampa

Scientology Volunteer Ministers:

In 1980, Scientology Founder L. Ron Hubbard issued an appeal. At that time, Mr. Hubbard wrote, “If one does not like the crime, cruelty, injustice and violence of this society, he can do something about it. He can become a Volunteer Minister and help civilize it, bring it conscience and kindness and love and freedom from travail by instilling into it trust, decency, honesty and tolerance.” The Scientology Volunteer Minister Program was then launched. VMs have been at every major disaster in the world since 9/11. In addition, every day, VMs help neighbors with the little disasters: marriage problems, raising children; study difficulties; getting off drugs, resolving conflicts and more.
