Scientology Volunteer Ministers are running wild to sanitize as many taxis as they can to protect hundreds of thousands who are using the service during this pandemic.
They are also sanitizing fire trucks, emergency ambulances and police cars to protect even more. Today they hit the 670,507 taxis sanitized mark just now.
Since lockdown started, the Scientology Volunteer Ministers have showed initiative in assisting their fellowmen. They have sanitized more than 24,919 buildings — from government buildings to schools, shelters, clinics, and many municipality properties.
They have produced more than 1,000,000 booklets which they translated in Zulu, Sotho and Xhosa so people can have access to basic but important tips on hygiene.
In total, they have given more than 414,500 hours of volunteer work to assist the country.
“It became obvious to us that with taxis slowly restarting during level 4 and even more lined up to do so during lesser levels, public transportation would become a place where the virus could spread faster.
We started sanitizing taxis to minimize the risk and this has now become a service that is really appreciated by the taxi drivers and their passengers,” said Sandile Hlayisi, Public Affairs Director for the Volunteer Ministers.
The Scientology Volunteer Ministers also sanitized thousands of police cars, emergency ambulances and fire trucks. “Those are vital too. So we assisted with sanitization as well,’ stated Hlayisi.
It is expected that after each sanitization, the drivers follow up and keep up high hygiene and sanitization daily. To further assist, taxi drivers are provided with booklets printed in Zulu, Sotho and Xhosa that they can give to their passengers as well. Those lay out some hygiene tips that anyone can use to protect themselves during the lockdown.
Hlayisi indicated that the Volunteer Minister technology, written by L. Ron Hubbard for South Africa some 50 years ago, is what makes the Scientology Volunteer Ministers able to organize in such period and more able to help.
