A special event took place in Nashville recently for World Humanitarian Day. It was a special tribute to community, faith-based and non-profit leaders who were recognized for their efforts with an educational seminar on how to organize projects for success.
World Humanitarian Day, as the UN describes it, “…is a time to recognize those who face danger and adversity in order to help others.” The day was created by the UN General Assembly to coincide with the anniversary of the 2003 bombing of the United Nations headquarters in Baghdad, Iraq.
The day is also special because it causes people to stop and think about the spirit that inspires humanitarian work around the globe.
As a humanitarian simply means “someone who cares about and is actively working to help other people,” members of the Church of Scientology were glad to host an inspiring and uplifting seminar tailored for these people.
Organizational leader Paul Silovsky delivered the workshop. He is an international consultant for physical therapy and other healthcare small businesses and a faculty member of Hands-On Seminars and Survival Strategies International.
Feedback was overwhelmingly positive from attendees. One attendee said, “This was so helpful. I’m about to launch a non-profit, and this gave me so much that I can use as I form it.” Others found they could put the information to use with groups they are already part of.
Humanitarian and Founder of Scientology, L. Ron Hubbard wrote, “If one does not like the crime, cruelty, injustice and violence of this society, he can do something about it.” For more information on the church or its upcoming events, visit scientology-ccnashville.org.
