todayshow.com: Scientologists Make a Difference in Haiti

.


MEREDITH: It has been 22 days now since that powerful magnitude 7 earthquake rocked Haiti. Organizations, including the controversial Church of Scientology, have sent volunteers to the region, but what exactly are they doing there? We had NBC's Kerry sanders check it out. Kerry, good morning.

SANDERS: Well, good morning, Meredith. Look, Catholic Relief Services, The Southern Baptist Convention, they're well known for their work in disasters, but now, quietly, the Church of Scientology is helping those in need. And as we discovered, they were at ground zero following 9/11, they were at Katrina, and now they're here, often doing the work that no one else wants to.

REPORTER: Frenetic chaos of this makeshift operating room. Doctors found unexpected helping hands. There, peeking out from under their scrubs, those yellow shirts are a tip-off.

150 volunteers from the sometimes controversial Church of Scientology. Like 22-year-old Josh Hawkins. No medical background, now working with surgeons.

HAWKINS: They were very sketchy when they first saw us. I think just because of Scientology, the name has some people associated with, so on and so forth.

DR DUDA: Your little baby suffered some fractures --

SANDERS: Doctors like Rosemary Duda, a Catholic from Boston, didn't even know who they were.

DR DUDA: I am totally impressed with these young adults from the Scientology church. They have just been so effective for us.

HAWKINS: People see the fact that, you know, the amazing work that we've been doing, just the love that we've been giving. They're like, oh, these are actually cool guys. They're not weird, freaky people, things like that, you know?

REPORTER: Nicole Greenwood from Los Angeles found her role here. Scientology teaches there's a connection between the mind and touch. It's called an assist. In 20 minutes, we watched as Nicole took the pain from the little girl with frowns to giggles. Nicole says scientologists are not here to spread their beliefs.

GREENWOOD: We don't even mention Scientology. We're here to help people. I don't think that cleaning toilets is going to get anyone to join the church.

REPORTER: Actor and accomplished pilot John Travolta flew in tons of medical aid. He's a Scientologist, but that never came up.

MR TRAVOLTA: When we arrived, we had 50, no 100 people, marines and volunteer ministers from my church helping us unload it.

REPORTER: Scientologists believe members' lives improve when they're highly organized. So, when you arrive here with those teachings, you can --

HARNEY: We can organize. We can find out what's needed and wanted and we can deliver those in an organized fashion.

SANDERS: And in all the chaos, a sobering moment when Josh cut his finger with a used bloody scalpel. He'll now be on preventive aids medication for the next six months.

HAWKINS: I'm still glad I came, beyond belief.

REPORTER: Reporter: Even with this?

HAWKINS: Oh, yeah, definitely.

SANDERS: Well, Josh and the others say they are here for the long-term, three to five months, and then they'll rotate out and other members of the Church of Scientology will replace them?

MERIDITH: Kerry Sanders, thank you so much.

SF Brothers:
Haiti SITREP: My team and I are preparing for another launch into Haiti. The work is tiring, hours are long, but probably some of the most rewarding I have ever been involved with. As I previously wrote, the act of kindness and selfless service are abundant in Haiti. Everyday men and women working countless hours to aid the Haitian people and bring a level of humanity to this inhuman situation. Amazing to witness…..

I want to shed some light to a group that is often ridiculed and mostly miss-understood. As my team and I worked to secure the University of Miami field hospital (in Port of Prince), we were approached by a group (no less than 20) of young people, all donning bright yellow t-shirts. Their shirts displayed their church affiliation. No, not a Baptist church, not a Catholic church, not even a Christian organization but instead they were all members of the church of Scientology.

Yes, the same Scientology that seems to be the latest in celebrity fads and so laughed by those of us whom have more “conventional” backgrounds when it comes to religion. After me and the other pipe-hitters joked a bit, it became apparent that these young people were here to assist us and render aid to the suffering. We were asked by the hospital administrator to employ these volunteers in yellow; and like any good Special Forces troop, we found work for our newest grunts. Immediately we had theses young believers of a different power cleaning bed-pans, escorting patients between wards, stacking the endless ocean of relief surplus and simply doing some really tough work. With a smile on their faces and a warmth for the suffering, these young people executed each task in a manner all of us as Americans would be proud.

Day after day they entered the camp (0700 hrs), yellow shirts fading daily from the previous day’s work but they never stopped or even slowed. Never a mal-word, never questioning our request (ok, sometimes our requests sounded like orders being barked) but always doing whatever was required to assist the people of Haiti. My team and I had the opportunity to talk with many of the Scientologist volunteers. Of course there were a few jokes, (SF-types always like to pick-fun at folks different from us) and to be honest they could dish it out as well as they receive it; but what a group of people! Religious beliefs aside (Hell, I really have no clue on what they believe in; only what I have read or heard about through media channels) these guy and girls are OK by me. They lived the selfless service motto; never questioning, always doing for others. Day after demanding day.

We all have differing values, beliefs and ethos we live by. I may not understand the Scientology church (if it is even referred to as a church) but I can attest to the fact that theses volunteers in once bright and now fading yellow shirts are a credit to whatever affiliation they serve. Their higher power has directed these young people to serve, just as my team and thousands continue to do in this terrible environment. It was my pleasure to meet and serve alongside the volunteers for the Scientology Church. Different beliefs / All American!

New York Times: Praise for Scientologists in Haiti

Excerpted from "Questions for Baptists, Praise for Scientologists in Haiti" by Robert Mackey, New York Times News Blog - 3 Feb 2010


A (silent) video news release from the Church of Scientology shows the group’s members taking part in the relief effort in Haiti...the work of volunteer ministers from the Church of Scientology was lauded in a report on American television.

American Scientologists are celebrating the praise heaped on their volunteer ministers in the Haitian capital during this glowing report on NBC’s “Today” show on Wednesday:


The report, headlined “Scientologists Make a Difference in Haiti,” shows volunteers working in a Port-au-Prince hospital alongside a doctor who pronounces herself “very impressed” and is narrated by a reporter who gives an enthusiastic account of Scientology healing and organizational techniques.

Not surprisingly, this rave review of the church’s efforts in Haiti is now featured on a Scientology Web site documenting the work of its volunteer ministers in the wake of disasters. Another post on the Scientology “Volunteer Minister Disaster Response” Web site shows members of the church helping to distribute food in Port-au-Prince alongside members of the American military.

Cary Goulston, the president of a Scientology outreach group who led a “Haiti Dianetics Tour” in 2008, wrote on another Web site affiliated with the church:

We got the U.S. Government to include us as part of the ‘Joint Command’ of U.S. and U.N. Military working with the 5 approved NGOs under the U.S. Southern Command. This entitled us to land and operate a Command Post out of the airport in Port-au-Prince.

Since there was some controversy over the ability of the Scientologists to land at the airport in Port-au-Prince, which is under the control of the U.S. Air Force, before other relief organizations like Doctors Without Borders were able to get all of their supplies in to the country, The Lede asked a representative of the State Department in Haiti if the Church of Scientology is working with the American military there. David Searby, a public affairs officer working from the U.S. Embassy in Port-au-Prince explained in an e-mail message on Wednesday:

The U.S. Government is working with hundreds of U.N., NGO and international partners. In many cases this support includes transportation of personnel and the much needed relief and medical supplies to various distribution points.

All U.N., NGO, and international partners capable of advancing the humanitarian relief efforts to meet the priorities set out by the Government of Haiti in response to the January 12 earthquake are given a slot to off-load cargo, supplies or personnel.

I may not understand the Scientology church (if it is even referred to as a church) but I can attest to the fact that theses volunteers in once bright and now fading yellow shirts are a credit to whatever affiliation they serve. Their higher power has directed these young people to serve, just as my team and thousands continue to do in this terrible environment. It was my pleasure to meet and serve alongside the volunteers for the Scientology Church. Different beliefs / All American!
