In August 2014, Sathya Sai volunteers from the cities of Vitebsk, Baranovichi, Minsk, and Lida served 35 children from troubled families living at a temporary shelter. Volunteers planted flowers and bushes, installed tile in a laundry room, stored construction materials, distributed clothes for needy children, and donated supplies to the shelter.
Since 2010, Sathya Sai volunteers have organised festivities in Baranovichi, in western Belarus, to mark the beginning and end of the SSE academic year. In September 2014, 28 guests attended a programme titled “Selflessness of Autumn” in a picturesque countryside flanked by woods, a garden, and a field. The activities included human-values-based contests, creative arts, workshops, and games. Children received folders with copy-books, pens, and stickers for use in their SSE classes.
