The last decade has been one of the most turbulent
in our history. Opposing ideologies, violent
revolutions and a frail socioeconomic structure

too can provide help.
In the last year alone the Volunteer Ministers
have given real help to 1.6 million people from
all walks of life and in 114 countries. That is why
Scientology Volunteer Ministers live by the motto:
Something Can Be Done About It.
