Baku, the capital of Azerbaijan, is located 28 metres below sea level, making it the world’s lowest-lying national capital and the largest city below sea level.  In October 2014, as a part of Serve the Planet project, 10 Sathya Sai volunteers visited a homeless shelter in Baku, and distributed detergent, dish soaps, light bulbs, paint for home interiors, faucets, and clothes, as well as baked goods to 41 children and their mothers.
