In July 2020, the Córdoba mountains were scorched by the largest forest fire ever seen, destroying over 300,000 hectares of native forest. Many animals, including birds, sheep, cows, chickens, and foxes perished in the fire. SSSIO volunteers from the Sri Sathya Sai Group of San Marcos Sierras provided food and drinks to the firefighters as well as needy families who were affected by the disaster. The volunteers continued serving several families for a number of months.
