From Pandemic to Progress: The Power of Volunteerism Captured in Groundbreaking Documentary

Belgium, 2nd Feb 2024, King NewsWire – In a world grappling with pandemics, social unrest, and myriad challenges, the spirit of volunteerism emerges as a beacon of hope and transformation. This pivotal message is at the heart of an upcoming premiere at the Church of Scientology’s Castle Kyalami headquarters in South Africa. On February 3rd, Scientology Churches globally, including those in Europe, will host a diverse audience for the unveiling of “Operation: Do Something About It,” a documentary that showcases the profound impact of volunteer efforts worldwide.

Crafted from over two years of dedicated service by Scientology Volunteer Ministers (VMs) globally, this documentary highlights their significant contributions during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond. It serves as a tribute to the Volunteer Ministers of the Scientology community, with a special focus on the heroic efforts of South African VMs. These volunteers have devoted over a million hours to frontline services in South Africa, collaborating closely with authorities to mitigate the virus’s spread. Their extensive efforts included sanitizing around 70,000 buildings, ensuring the safety and health of the public.

“Operation: Do Something About It” embodies the core mission of the Volunteer Ministers: to extend unwavering support and assistance to those in need. This mission aligns with the vision of L. Ron Hubbard, Scientology’s founder, who initiated this program in the mid-1970s to instill purpose, truth, and spiritual values in society. The film underscores the Volunteer Ministers’ commitment to addressing and mitigating global suffering, evil, and injustice.

Significantly, the documentary highlights the progress of the Volunteer Ministers program in South Africa, where over half a million people have engaged in the Tools for Life Courses, and nearly 25,000 have become fully certified VMs. Beyond celebrating these achievements, the film serves as a call to action for more individuals to participate in volunteerism and make a positive impact in their communities.

As the documentary premieres in Africa and is broadcast worldwide, its message holds universal appeal. It offers insights and inspiration for the European Union, where volunteerism is deeply ingrained in societal values. Ivan Arjona, Scientology’s representative to the EU institutions and the UN, suggests that European nations can learn from the Volunteer Ministers’ experiences to adapt and address health and environmental challenges effectively.

In conclusion, “Operation: Do Something About It” transcends its documentary format to become a powerful testament to the enduring spirit of volunteerism and collective effort. As it debuts in Africa and reaches a global audience, it invites us to recognize that actionable steps can be taken to make a difference in the face of adversity. Through the lens of Scientology Volunteer Ministers’ endeavors, we are reminded of the transformative power of volunteerism and the importance of united action for a better world.
