Operation Do Something About It: A story of the Planet’s Largest Global Volunteer Response

On February 3rd, the Church of Scientology South Africa at Castle Kyalami will host government officials, community leaders, religious and business figures, and more for the African premiere of their new documentary, Operation: Do Something About It, at their continental headquarters.

This week, on the 3rd of February, the Church of Scientology South Africa, Castle Kyalami, will host over hundreds of government officials, community leaders, religious and business leaders and more at their continental headquarters of the Church of Scientology, for the African premiere of their new documentary, Operation: Do Something About It. 

Having worked extremely hard and intensely for over 2 years selflessly for the benefit of society, this documentary will showcase the extent of the exceptional work done internationally. 

The film will honor the Scientology Volunteer Ministers internationally for their service throughout the pandemic and their continued help to date. And South African Volunteer Ministers play a central role in the documentary.

Through the pandemic, South Africa’s Volunteer Ministers contributed over a million volunteer hours on the frontlines, working with authorities to curb the spread of the virus. In South Africa alone, they decontaminated some 70,000 buildings, from hospitals, clinics and senior centers to government offices, police departments, fire houses and their ambulances, and transportation hubs. They protected the health of millions using the nation’s taxis and buses each day.

The film captures the Volunteer Ministers’ unwavering commitment to helping and supporting communities in need, carrying out the vision of Scientology Founder L. Ron Hubbard for the program and creating a better society for all.

The Volunteer Ministers of South Africa have enrolled more than a half million individuals on Tools for Life Courses. Nearly 25,000 have become full-fledged VMs, having completed all 19 courses. 

In developing the program in the mid-1970s, Mr. Hubbard described the Volunteer Minister as a person “a person who helps his fellow man on a volunteer basis by restoring purpose, truth and spiritual values to the lives of others.” The documentary is based on the motto he created for the program, that no matter the circumstances “Something can be done about it.” Their creed is: “A Volunteer Minister does not shut his eyes to the pain, evil and injustice of existence. Rather, he is trained to handle these things and help others achieve relief from them and new personal strength as well.”
