Scientology Volunteer Ministers Working to Restore Calm in a Violent Region

For the past month a team of Scientology Volunteer Ministers from Tel Aviv has been helping to restore calm and security in the face of violence and destruction.
While the cause and resolution of the Israeli-Lebanese conflict was being debated in the press, one thing was clear to the Scientologists of Israel: thousands were dying on both sides of the conflict and millions were being injured, living in shelters, their lives completely disrupted. The people of the region were in need of help — the kind of help Scientology Volunteer Ministers are trained with the Scientology Handbook to be able to give.
And help is what they provided.
They started by visiting shelters for the hundreds of thousands who had been evacuated from the northern part of the country and the South of Lebanon, in towns and cities including Natania, Zihron Yaakov and Binyamina. In Tveriya, the Mayor welcomed them and commended them for their help.
They distributed food, they manned emergency help-lines, they visited hundreds of shelters where they gave one-on-one help to the people who were stranded there, and they trained hundreds of people in how to help one another with Scientology Assists from the Scientology Handbook.
They distributed hundreds of thousands of copies of booklets and pamphlets in Hebrew and Arabic, from human rights literature to copies of The Way to Happiness — a common-sense, non-religious moral code that promotes peace and understanding.
With the cease-fire now in effect, life is beginning to return to normal and hundreds of thousands are returning home to their families and jobs. But Scientology Volunteer Ministers of Israel will not soon forget the many friends they made, helping on the front lines to restore calm in a violent region.
