Southern California Wild Fires
When the wild fires struck Southern California a call went out to Scientology Volunteer Ministers in Los Angeles to mobilize and give assistance to the Red Cross. A group immediately went out to the evacuation area at San Bernardino Airport giving comfort and help to the people who had lost their homes or were waiting to see if they still had a home to return to. More help is on-going and I'll post it here as I learn more.
Scientology Volunteer Ministers are experienced in disaster relief having assisted in rescue and relief operations all over the world. They not only give the sort of physical help people need, such as providing food and shelter, but they also provide the practical spiritual help needed to overcome the stress and trauma of disaster situations.
If you or someone you know needs help with the stress or trauma of a disaster, or even of a small disaster of everyday life then call 1 800 HELP 4 YU.
