Since the Beginning of the Pandemic the Freewinds Volunteer Ministers Have Worked Hard with One Purpose in Mind to Make Aruba the Safest Place on Earth




The Volunteer Ministers from the Freewinds have been working since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic helping Aruba stay safe.  Beginning with the distribution of over 96,500 Stay Well booklets across the island and providing sanitization of more than 3,000,000,000 square feet of key locations but one of the volunteers commented that their work will continue resolutely until they bring the spread of the virus down to zero.


Businesses were very happy to receive the Stay Well booklets and be able to pass them along to their customers.  A store owner commented, “Very nice that you’re doing this. We have to come out of this situation. As you know Aruba’s economy is based on Tourism. And with this we can work together to get out of this situation and have the tourists back. We want them back.” 



Flanking the distribution of educational materials on how to be safe from Covid-19 the Freewinds is involved in an all-out effort to sanitize as many locations as possible.  This is being done by forming partnerships with business and organizations to get involved in the sanitization island-wide.


With the OK from the DVG and Aruba Crisis Team in early April, the Volunteer Ministers moved out through the island doing sanitization of key locations with a product called Decon 7, or D7, which is the most powerful disinfecting agent there is in killing bacteria and viruses.  Locations sanitized include schools, churches, government offices, medical facilities, police stations, the ambulances, restaurants, bars, hotels and more.  


The Port Captain of the Freewinds, Mr. Ken Weber stated, “These efforts are being done for the benefit of everyone on Aruba.  We have seen the effects of having the borders closed bringing the tourism to virtually zero.  Tourism is the lifeblood of Aruba, and as the base port for the Freewinds we want to make it safe for everyone to come here as a safe heaven. We helped push the number of active cases to zero once, and when the second outbreak came at the end of September the Volunteer Minsters were again out doing sanitization with the sole purpose to bring the cases down to zero again and for good.


We are not slowing down.  In fact, it is our intention to not only continue with all our prevention and sanitation actions, but expand it even further as we continue to partner with more and more local organizations and businesses who have the same purpose to increase the number of locations being sanitized daily.  The goal is to make Aruba the safest place on earth where people are happy to come to because they know is safe.”


As a local patron put it when she saw the Freewinds volunteers fogging a local mall: “You are from the Freewinds. I recognize you. You are the Volunteer Ministers that are helping make Aruba safe again! Thank you for everything you are doing for Aruba and our people, especially the children.  We see you all the time in the newspapers. Everyone is talking about you!  Please continue what you are doing, which is not only disinfecting the island, but educating people on the importance of following the protocols to stay safe. God bless you and god bless the Freewinds!” 

Mr. Jean Paul Gibbs, the facility manager for the MFA buildings, ensured his building were safe for the community and worked with the volunteers to get all of the buildings sanitized throughout the island and was very pleased with the efforts of the Volunteer Ministers. He expressed his appreciation by saying: “What you have done is extremely nice, very positive.  You are really helping the community.”


The most important point in the fight against Covid-19 is prevention.  It cannot be stressed enough that an ounce of prevention is worth a ton of cure.   Protocols must be followed by everyone.  This is why the Volunteer Ministers provide educational materials in the form of Stay Well videos and copies of the Daily Cleaning & Sanitizing Checklist, in English or Spanish, at every location they visit.
