This week, the Johannesburg Metropolitan Police Department (JMPD) Chief Ms. Angie Mokasi presented the Scientology Volunteer Ministers with a prestigious award for the tireless work…
300 days since lockdown started. Scientology Volunteer Ministers announce that none of their volunteers have contracted the virus despite them being exposed daily when they voluntarily decontaminated places with confirmed cases.
They attribute this to sticking to protocols always. Sandile Hlayisi, Public Affairs Director for Scientology Volunteer Ministers says “Our volunteers are always in masks, gloves and always maintain social distancing, it is possible to curb the spread of this virus, and we all just need to stick to protocols”.
“After our Volunteers decontaminate a building that had a positive case, they further decontaminate themselves and dispose of the PPE accordingly before travelling to another site” Added Hlayisi.
In the past 300 days of the pandemic, Scientology Volunteer Ministers have managed to decontaminate 51, 458 buildings, and 1,111,061 essential services vehicles including ambulances, buses, army vehicles, polices cars, fire engines and more.
Working daily since day 1 of the lockdown, the volunteers have donated over 839,000 hours of voluntary work to mitigate the spread of the virus and educated millions on how to stay safe during this pandemic.
They vow to continue this humanitarian effort and will stop at nothing to assist their Country during these dark times.
The team of more than 300 volunteers, have been active throughout the entire country decontaminating anything from government offices to army bases, municipal offices, clinics, hospitals, police stations, taxi ranks, bus and train stations, shelters, orphanages, old-age homes and high traffic areas amounting to 153,129,686 million square meters of sanitized property all at their own cost. That is equivalent to travelling around the earth more than 3 times.
They have distributed over 1.3 million of their stay well booklets in order to educate citizens with the knowledge they need to protect themselves and their families from the virus.
Hlayisi adds that Scientology Founder L. Ron Hubbard put forth The Volunteer Minister’s mandate and that is to be “a person who helps his fellow man on a volunteer basis by restoring purpose, truth and spiritual values to the lives of others.” They follow this mandate to every corner of the earth during any crisis.
