In Kansas City, concurrent to their citywide Stay Well campaign, the Church of Scientology and KC community activists partnered for Peace Rides and distribution of The Way to Happiness, the nonreligious moral code that has inspired a movement for peace across inner-city America. In honor of the event, Kansas City rapper and recording artist Kodde One wrote an anthem entitled “Hold Yo’ Head High” to help spread the booklet’s message of brotherhood throughout the city.

When Aruba closed its borders, the Sea Org Motor Vessel Freewinds, Scientology’s humanitarian ship, was docked in port. With a complete lockdown on all international incoming tourists, the island’s lifeblood, the Freewinds launched an all-Aruba education initiative, distributing Stay Well booklets to every resident on the island.
BENEFITING PLACES OF LEARNING & WORSHIP
Freewinds Volunteer Ministers teamed up with Aruba’s Fire Brigade to implement government protocols island-wide. Together, they prepared churches and schools for reopening. In total, they sanitized every public school on the island—all to the benefit of some 26,000 students.
STABILIZING THE INFRASTRUCTURE
The Volunteer Ministers from the Freewinds and Aruba’s firefighters covered still more ground, sanitizing government, civic and cultural institutions—more than 4 million square feet sanitized.
