A 19th medical and service camp in Kazakhstan was organised by 36 Sathya Sai volunteers from seven cities, from 4th to 6th April 2014, in the town of Saran in Karaganda district. A physician, a psychologist and a dermatologist examined 66 patients and provided medicines. The dermatologist also gave a lecture on hygiene and personal care.

The volunteers served three cooked meals every day and delivered 35 packages of sugar, rice, buckwheat, macaroni, tea, sunflower oil, butter, milk, dates, halwa and apples to the homes of needy residents. New clothes were distributed. Sathya Sai educators, including 13 Sai Spiritual Education (SSE) teachers, gave talks to senior students from low-income families about the harmful effects of alcohol and tobacco. In appreciation, the headmaster of the school presented a certificate of merit to the Sathya Sai Organisation of Kazakhstan.
