The Scientology Volunteer Ministers, have been assisting the front liners since lockdown started in March, they have now sanitized one million taxis, police cars, ambulances, fire trucks, army vehicles and buses as part of their humanitarian work to assist the country.
While many taxis have been done on a regular basis, the Volunteer Ministers boast about the fact that in all the taxi ranks they regularly did, marshals of those ranks reported that there had been no cases found of covid-19 due to the daily sanitation.
“That makes it all worthwhile. While we did all those taxis, and other essential service cars over the past seven months at our own cost and with zero day off, the fact that we made a difference is more satisfactory. And we have no intention to stop soon,” said Sandile Hlayisi, director of Public Affairs for the Volunteer Ministers.
He further stated that while the numbers are impressive, what is even more important to them is that it represents even more millions of people protected against the pandemic as they go to work and return home in sanitized vehicles, and it safeguarded as well the taxi drivers who could have contacted the virus themselves otherwise.
“If you consider taxis can carry 15 people at a time and you multiply that through the number of taxis and further multiply that by the more than 200 days of lockdown the country has been under, it does represent many tens of millions,” added Hlayisi. “It is an honor for us to have been able to get this done so far. It is our country and it has always been important for us to assist.”
In addition to that, they have also decontaminated 37,836 buildings from one floor shelter to 35-floor government which totals more than 850 million square feet and have volunteered a total of 576,500 hours to help the nation during this pandemic.
Hlayisi insists that without the technology of the Volunteer Ministers written by L. Ron Hubbard, the work would not have been the same. He is also happy that since they started, more than 4400 people have also learned that technology, with some of them joining the team to help too.
“The backup we got was very important for us as well,” said Hlayisi.
