As part of the commemoration of Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba’s 96th Birthday, SSSIO volunteers in Suriname organized a National Pandemic service project during November 2021 called “From Sai to Sai”.

A group of 23 volunteers from four Sri Sathya Sai Centers distributed more than 235 food hampers, masks, and sanitizers at 17 retirement homes and disabled children’s homes, and to those living in homeless shelters. More than 96 families were given food hampers containing rice, toppings, spreads, jam, peanut butter, sprinkles, sunflower oil, yellow peas, kidney beans, flour, chickpeas, sugar, salt, tea, spaghetti, oatmeal, medical supplies, sanitizers, and masks. The volunteers also delivered more than 16 cartons of medical supplies and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to all five hospitals in Suriname, an outpatient clinic, and a few homes for elders.
