Scientology Volunteer Ministers Leave a Legacy in Indonesia

Indonesia is the fourth most populated country in the world. And if there were a competition for the most dangerous place to live, when it comes to natural disasters it would rank right up there at the top of the list.

The December 2004 tsunami brought this fact home to the world. Anyone with a TV set or access to the Internet was engulfed by the images of devastation: more than 170,000 dead in a matter of minutes; millions displaced from their homes; loss in property or possessions incalculable; an entire population affected by the loss.

Within days of the disaster, hundreds of Scientology volunteers arrived in Medan, the capital of the province of North Sumatra. Led by an experienced team of Australian Scientology Volunteer Ministers, several hundred Scientologists from around the world formed into the Scientology Disaster Relief Team. First order of business—help the rescue workers, identify the bodies, and deliver water, food and blankets to those who survived.

With the most urgent and life-threatening needs attended to, the Scientology volunteers began concentrating on the service that has become the hallmark of the program—they helped those affected by the disaster recover from the effect of injury, trauma and loss, using techniques, developed by L. Ron Hubbard, called Scientology assists. They also trained doctors, nurses, Muslim clerics and family members who in turn brought help to survivors, and so touched the lives of hundreds of thousands in desperate need to help.

When The Scientology Volunteer Ministers packed up and returned home, they left behind a team of local volunteers whom they trained and formed up into the Scientology Assist Team of Medan, Indonesia.

So it was that in May 2006, when Yogyakarta was struck by a magnitude 6.3 earthquake, members of the Medan Scientology Assist Team were already on hand when Scientologists from Australia, the United States and Europe flew in to help. The team provided urgently needed help in hospitals that were so overcrowded that parking structures were turned into makeshift wards to care for those injured by the disaster.

And again in July 2006 when Java was shaken by a magnitude 7.7 quake, once again the Scientologists trained thousands of Indonesians to deliver Scientology assists.

By the end of August 2006 the Scientology volunteers had trained more than 10,000 Indonesians who in turn helped hundreds of thousands more.

The legacy of the Scientology Volunteer Ministers continues to this day, with active members of the Scientology Disaster Relief Team on call throughout the country to help in times of need.
