    Tyler Perry Cares…

    My prayers are with the people of Haiti. I’m so glad that this new leadership in our government has responded so quickly. Thank God for change. The truth of the matter is this, “There but for the grace of God it could be any of us” and when we help our fellow man we truly help all of humanity, including ourselves.

    If you are like me, I know you want to do something. If you are like me, I know you want to make sure that whatever you do, it actually gets to the people of Haiti. I was watching the news and was appalled that some people are already starting to set up charity scams. I just don’t understand how people can be so cruel.

    I had planned to give a private donation once I vetted some of these organizations, but then I thought about the people who may want to give but don’t have the ability to look deeply into some of these organizations

    Matias Casares brings soccer program to “future of Haiti” Orphanage

    The Angels of Soccer of Haiti visited the 99 orphans currently at Future of Haiti Orphanage.


    PR Log (Press Release) – Feb 10, 2010 – Future of Haiti, an orphanage and school with the purpose to build future leaders of Haiti, is working with Matias Casares, former Tampa Bay professional soccer player and Angels of Soccer of Haiti to put soccer as a mainstay in the orphanage. The soccer will give the youth an immediate focus, directing them to fun activities and getting their attention of the many losses they have experienced, and a long term athletic program for college scholarships.

    Currently there are more children than adults in Haiti, and sadly, most of them are orphans. Matias Casares’ father, the great World Cup winner Argentinean Negro Casares, had a passion to help orphans his whole life, and frequently took Matias to visit these children without families when Matias was only a child himself. In honor of his father Matias is now dedicating his life to helping children through soccer, and one of his projects is creating a program with the Future of Haiti Orphanage.

    Reginald Jean, a native of Haiti, owned two orphanages with 200 orphans prior to the earthquake. One of them collapsed and the second one is unlivable. To give those orphans and other children who have lost their family a home, he teamed up with a group of Church of Scientology Volunteer Ministers from Florida, Youth for Human Rights Florida, Clearwater Academy International, Washburn Academy, Delphi Academy of Florida, El Especial Newspaper and International Youth Theatre. Together they are giving a permanent home to those original orphans that survived plus others who recently lost their families.

    The Angels of Soccer of Haiti visited the 99 orphans currently at Future of Haiti Orphanage. Upon arrival they were greeted by dozens of very excited Haitian children. The youth were so happy to have an opportunity to play with athletes, they spent the beginning of the visit hugging, jumping and giving high fives before the soccer began. Being with these kids Casares felt the passion his father once had for orphans and committed to bringing his soccer program to Haitian children.

    For more information about the Future of Haiti orphanage contact the project coordinator Barbara Santos at 727-643-3975 or at

    Haiti's shameful tradition of keeping child slaves, known as restaveks. "I really fear," says Pean, "that most of the kids you see being picked up on the streets in Haiti right now are going to become restaveks or victims of sexual trafficking."

    seems in the dozen of news articles I've read on the subject this is a common practice in all most all orphanages in fact it is epidemic the abuse is severe and widespread
    organization such as Save the children the Red Cross and Unicef are monitoring the situation

    parental placement of a Restavek child involves turning over child-rearing responsibility to another household in exchange for the childs unpaid domestic service child trafficking and slavery children are also sold into sex slavery

    Re: Haiti charity scam

    Haiti had over 300,000 Restavek before the Earthquake,a majority of children are sold into the Restavek system
    children aren't necessarily orphaned.. instead their family's sell of their children or send them off into a life of misery, it is a common practice, no part of the society in Haiti is unaffected.. it is a profitable criminal operation many well to do family's partake in profiting from the Restavek system orphanages play a big part in all of it.

    this is a Scilon PR news report at this link.

    Dr. Darrell Craig, DMD, talks of his work on the Scientology Haiti Disaster Response Team.

    it seems Scientology brought along Dentists- who are Scientologsts as part of their medical Teams..while a dentist has a medical degree its not the type of MD that should be running a Critical Care Unit with “no supplies, very unsanitary conditions,in a Disaster Zone too many patients and very little time.

    my guess is some of the medical personnel Scions have assembled to go to Haiti were chiropractors,podiatrists dentists and others they have recruited through "front groups" like WISE make up some of what the CoS considers medical personnel. on their Haiti mission

    Scientology recruits chiropractors,podiatrists,dentists through some of its front groups like Sterling Management and WISE

    how many more stories will come out of the woodwork? about the these types of Medical personnel Scilons are trying to promote as medical personnel. Is this what they have assembled? .my guess is we may find out a this is the case
    as well as vitamins being counted as medications as part of their reported Medical supply's
    we do know they provided a lot of Ibuprofen

    Haiti in trouble? Lord Xenu to the rescue!

    February 2, 2010 by theblamegame

    But The Church of Scientology’s response to this urgent call for emergency help? Wait almost two weeks and then have the aging star of Grease pilot a retrofitted luxury Boeing 707 with 4 tonnes of ready-to-eat military rations, medical supplies, acolytes and ‘ministers’ to Haiti! Huh?

    But I openly question their motives after it came to light that their ‘ministers’ weren’t just rendering aide and handing out food to quake survivors at hospitals, they were also preying on vulnerable survivors by performing their “Touch Assist” healing rituals that they claim can reconnect damaged nervous systems.

    And because of the dangerous and at times complex technical nature of these tasks (search and rescue, medical aide etc) these duties need to be performed by trained professionals. This definitely isn’t a job for actors and ‘ministers’. As such, sending more aide and less acolytes would have been far more beneficial to Haiti and its survivors (as well as to the ‘Church’s’ image).

    A lot of great things are happening in Haiti.
    Many changes are taking place at this moment.

    The Scientology Volunteer Ministers are working really hard in different and diverse projects. To carry out the different tasks they have been divided into five groups.

    All of these Volunteer Minister groups are working really hard giving their best to help their fellow man.

    The motto of each of the Scientology Volunteer Ministers is “SOMETHING CAN BE DONE ABOUT IT”.

    The group Ernesto Barrientos is working with has been meeting with the President of Health that works directly with the President of Haiti so the Volunteer Ministers can act as advisors in the reconstruction of Haiti.

    Yesterday they also held a meeting with the Chief of Police and an agreement was made by which the Volunteer Ministers will train 15 policemen on different communication drills, particularly on TRs, and once these 15 policemen are trained they will be in charge of training a group of 150 policemen and so on.

    Also, this same group of Scientology Volunteer Ministers has been working at a school and shelter that holds 12000 people to which they are training to give assists. The people of Haiti have been experiencing a lot of benefits from the assists given by the Scientology Volunteer Ministers. Out of these 12000, they are training 20 people that will in turn train other 50 and so on. These people are delighted to receive all this information and help.

    There is the project of opening a Mission to give a future to the maltreated people of Haiti.

    The group Ernesto Barrientos is working with is in charge of these three projects and two other additional ones.

    As Ernesto relates at the beginning, there are 5 Volunteer Minister Groups, each one of them is working really hard all day long. Imagine all they are doing.

    They need more Ministers and need materials in French, this is urgent, assist booklets, The Way to Happiness booklets for children, Scientology Handbooks to give to authorities, the Red Cross, etc…

    Let’s help so the Volunteer Ministers can continue helping. We all can and must help the Volunteer Ministers in Haiti so they, at the front lines, can keep on doing what they know best: to help devoting themselves to such a worthy and valuable work.

    Get in communication with Felicidad Serrano, via Facebook, so from your homes you can help those who lost their own.

    Just the fact that these generally young, semi-educated, cult-inducted purveyors of LRon Hubbard 'tech', can even remotely be considered 'ministers' in the first place should be raising the hairs on every good Hatian's neck.
    Serrano and his buddy Barrientos are the alpha-heads of vulture quacking teams? Off to do good?

    I am not shocked by the revelation a Dentist was part of the Medical team the sent along,I think if you scratch the surface you cold find more Chiropractors.podiatrists,dentist on the list counted as Doctors by the Scilons...everything they do is suspect.. since they do recruit those types of medical professionals through "WISE" maybe they need to adjust their stats(LIES) to reflect the truth for once.... they probably count that kid "Josh" on the MSNBC piece as a Doctor.

    Re: Haiti charity scam

    I find it more than a little suspect after reading a few communications about Claude Reginald Jean and his association with Global Pioneers and Scientology
    Claude Jean was mentioned in one as the "Owner"of not one but two Orphanages in Haiti.
    in Scientologys own press releases that it is his intention to return and re open an Orphanage.

    it was also mentioned that the property the VM's are setting up their Orphanage on is a walled compound next to the Airport is owned By Claude Jean several picture are available on Cos VM web sites. Pat Harney CoS spokesperson in Haiti also mentioned the CoS intention to open an orphanage.

    there was also a Local Florida Fox News report On Claude Jean and his family who arrived in Florida after the Earthquake evacuated on John Travoltas private airplane..the story is about how his 4 children all received full scholarship from the Clearwater academy a Scientology and Claude Jean appeared Briefly in the report Surrounded by Scientology books in the report to talk about the scholarships from the CoS school. this is suspect because the CoS never gives anything away without strings attached..

    Restaveks: or Child Slaves of Haiti are commonplace and accepted practice in Haiti estimates have the number of children at around 300,000 before the earthquake. orphanages and people that run orphanages play a major role in child slave trafficking, you are more likely to find the practice of Restaveks taking place in orphanages than not. it is the normal way of doing business and many so-called respectable people in Haiti partake in the system of abuse. It is also recognized by the Government In Haiti a government that looks the other way..regarding this horrible practice..many of the people who run orphanages are well to do by Haitians standards and profiteer off the misery of children. while much of the society looks the other way or condones its practices.

    I am not assuming Mr "Claude Reginald Jean" partakes in the Trafficking of children, or suggesting that he does. but the odds in Haiti might suggest that its possible..since it is commonplace,and in general people are not running orphanages out of the goodness of their hearts in Haiti rather to exploit and profit from its system.
    the CoS might want to rethink its involvement of running an orphanage if it involves a system of Restaveks in its past,present or future.
    it will be interesting to see what spin the CoS puts on this story.and even more interesting if an investigative reporter digs into it a little deeper.

    The same source mentioned the prevalence of illegal organ trafficking which is if anything worse.

    I didn't like the implication of owning an orphanage either. Makes it sound like a business.

    Re: Haiti charity scam

    I'm curious what the ratio of VM press releases is relative to all of the other aid groups in Haiti combined?

    You'd think the news channels would be curious why they are spending so much time on PR instead of actual aid.

    Re: Haiti charity scam

    you can put a make-up and dress on a try and disguise it but its still a Pig.

    “The practice of ‘lending’ a child away to go and live with well-off families for their sake is a practice very old in Haiti.” the people that do it to present it as employing the principle of charity. like its somehow a benefit to the children. usually they are beaten and sexually abused and exploited once in the system.
    some Restavek Orphanages set up "schooling"using the term loosely, to give an appearance of being respectable ..really what its does is allow the "Owner" more profit. there is also a bit of an "Reverse Underground Railroad" shipping these children off into slavery in places outside Haiti including here in the USA, only freedom is not whats at the end of the tracks.

    family's often give their children to these Slave Traffickers because poverty is so extreme in Haiti , often they go out looking for children "recruiting"or pick them up off the streets. you'd be hard pressed not to find an orphanage in Haiti that didn't partake in the practice of "Restavek" there is little charity involved.
    an Interesting note: that "Claude Reginald Jean" considers himself a humanitarian worker he fits right in with the Scions. nothing humanitarian ..or Human in those scabs.

    because this is how they roll

    Hello, My name is Angeline Ranelli and I am a Premier Designs direct distributor and I would like to do a fundraiser for Haiti disaster relief. Premier Designs has a high-fashion jewelery line with over 700 pieces in the collection.

    My plan is to have a large, and highly publicized, open-house jewelery demonstration and to donate 40% of my 50% profit to the Volunteer Minister fund.
    Scientology Volunteer Ministers are serving in Haiti and the Dominican Republic, providing skilled logistical support to aid the earthquake recovery. Supported by individuals and groups in the US, UK, Canada, Germany, France, Italy and elsewhere, Volunteer Ministers provide organizational support to medical teams, enabling the doctors and nurses to treat the injured and they have arranged for and distributed more than 3,200 meals in the past two weeks. Their food distribution gets them in the poorest areas around Port Au Prince. (the volunteers in the yellow shirts are volunteer ministers)

    So what I need is a venue, maybe a church or a community center, or anywhere with decent floor space donated for this purpose.
    During my presentation, I would be honored in highlighting the sponsor. If you would like your business to be a part of this, or have any suggestions, I can be reached at (267) 531-8035 or at I would like to do this as soon as possible, maybe the weekend of 2/27/10.

    Just know, Haiti is lost without our help and if we all do something small, it can add to greatness! SOMETHING CAN BE DONE ABOUT IT!

    Thank you and have a blessed day!
