In November and December 2015, the SSIO of Croatia undertook two service activities for the needy in the village of Letovanic near the river Kupa, continuing work started in 2014 in cooperation with local fire-fighters, after the village was impacted by a great flood. Special attention was given to vulnerable families with children as well as elderly or helpless people. On 14th November, Sathya Sai volunteers visited Letovanic to distribute warm clothing, footwear, and toys collected by members of the Sathya Sai Centres of Zagreb. The volunteers also donated a much-needed printer/scanner/copier to a local primary school. On 20th December, SSIO volunteers from Zagreb and Sisak visited nine of the poorest families in Letovanic, offering Christmas gifts of fresh fruits and sweets. The group also provided basic household appliances to three indigent families, and a furnace for cooking and heating to an elderly woman subsisting in frigid cold conditions. In addition, a Sathya Sai physician offered medical advice and general check-ups to villagers lacking access to medical care.
