More than 40 Sathya Sai volunteers in the Netherlands, organised in groups, rendered selfless service, 20th–24th April 2017, in honour of Sathya Sai Aradhana Mahotsavam. One team helped elderly or disabled people with their gardening, embellishing 13 gardens with flowering plants. Another group of Sathya Sai members visited lonely and abandoned people to bring them love and cheer. Another volunteer team escorted 15 wheelchair-bound residents of a retirement home to a park for an outing. In another instance, SSIO members cooked dinner for the homeless at a shelter, while others engaged in a game of bingo, at the request of a group of elderly people living near their Sathya Sai Centre. Some volunteers took families with children, living in a homeless shelter, to a petting farm, to lift their spirits. In another community, children participated in arts and crafts activities, based on human values. Members of the Sathya Sai Centre of Rotterdam invited elderly guests to attend a bhajan session and served them dinner.
