Scientology Disaster Relief

Disaster Relief wasn't actually the original intention for the Scientology Volunteer Ministers movement. But it lends itself to that kind of scene so well.

For several reasons:

1. Scientologists feel responsible to help at those times, when people need their ability to calm things down, restore order and help at a time when communication lines and organization is usually fatally interrupted.

2. Assist technology (as described in the Scientology Handbook) is so effective at these times.

3. Scientologists are, from my personal experience, very caring people who are dependable and have taken disasters on as their responsibility.
