Bishkek is the capital of Kyrgyzstan, in central Asia. In October 2014, Sathya Sai volunteers distributed clothes, jackets, boots, socks, and other items to children in Bishkek, as part of the global SSIO Serve the Planet initiative. A lesson on the theme, Friendship, unity and mutual help, was organised for the children, which was enjoyed by the children and their mothers, as well as the Sathya Sai volunteers.
