Building a Bridge in Indonesia

On 1st March 2017, six volunteers from the Sathya Sai Study Group of Medan began replacing a bridge at Dalan Naman village, Kuala District, Langkat, North Sumatra, helped by four villagers and five labourers. The heavily-used bridge is essential to movement between the villages of Dalan Naman and Sei Penjara. This is the second bridge the team has replaced. The bridge was in total disrepair, jeopardizing the safety of the villagers; a high school student had been seriously injured after falling 15 metres from this bridge. The volunteers constructed the new bridge with high quality steel to ensure its strength. The 73-metre-long and 2-metre-wide bridge, intended for both pedestrian and motorcyclist use, was named “Love All Serve All.” It was completed on 11th March and inaugurated on 16th March 2017, amidst celebrations attended by local village authorities and members of the Sathya Sai Study Group.
