Clothing Drive Launched to Aid Nepal Earthquake Victims

The effort is part of the Scientology Volunteer Ministers Center's ongoing relief efforts in Kathmandu where aid is still needed nine months after the deadly temblor.

With temperatures plummeting in Nepal, the Scientology Volunteer Ministers Center in Kathmandu has made collecting and distributing clothing a priority to assist those still suffering the effects of last April’s devastating earthquake.

The Volunteer Ministers set up a collection station in front of Pashupati Temple in the Gaushala area of Kathmandu, distributing the clothing to earthquake victims still living in refugee camps that ring the city. Nearly 1 million homes were estimated to have been damaged by the 7.8-magnitude quake last April 25.

"No matter the problem, something can be done about it."

Volunteer Ministers motto

Despite the freezing weather, teams of volunteers also continue their cleanup and construction projects in more than a dozen mountain villages.

And each week, Volunteer Ministers group leaders travel to the city for training, one of the primary activities of the Center. Each new team returns with skills to help their communities and a program to activate and train others to continue with the relief effort.

The Volunteer Ministers program was expressly intended for use by Scientologists and non-Scientologists alike.  Anyone may train as a Volunteer Minister and use these tools to help their families and communities and all are welcome to do so.

Equipped with effective technology to resolve virtually any difficulty, Volunteer Ministers live by the motto: “No matter the problem, something can be done about it.”
