BUDAPEST, Hungary, January 6, 2021 (Newswire.com) - Volunteer Ministers from the Church of Scientology of Budapest are optimistic about the news that the second wave of COVID-19 may have peaked in the country. But they understand the toll of 10 months of restrictions on families already coping with poverty. So far from relaxing, they continue to provide food and supplies to needy families.
They fill their van with donated food and other essential supplies and bring them to local charities and families.
Working with other philanthropic organizations such as the Children Hope Foundation of Debrecen in the east of the country and the Warm Heart Association in nearby Tapiobicske, the Volunteer Ministers are always on call to ensure donations make it into the hands of those in need.
In the city of Dunaujvaros, Volunteer Ministers organized a charity drive to collect food and cleaning materials and delivered them to 15 local families. In Budapest, with the Association of Big Families in district 15, the Volunteer Ministers brought food and supplies to 50 families. And they are putting together another delivery through the family help center in the town of Mako.
In addition to providing food and supplies, Volunteer Ministers ensure communities know how to protect themselves from the virus. As soon as the pandemic began, the most effective measures were researched for ensuring the safety of Scientology staff and parishioners, and these were implemented internationally as protocols.
To make this prevention information broadly available, the Church of Scientology created videos and educational booklets that are all available to read, watch or download from the How to Stay Well Prevention Resource Center on the Scientology website. Scientology Volunteer Ministers of Hungary distributed thousands of copies of these booklets in their communities to make sure local families know how to make it through the pandemic safe and well.
The founder of the Scientology religion is L. Ron Hubbard and David Miscavige is the religion's ecclesiastical leader. For more information, visit the Scientology website or the Scientology TV network.
