As part of the Active Summer 2023 initiative in July 2023, SSSIO volunteers in Astana spent quality time with people living in mud huts. They provided them with pasta, oil, buckwheat, millet, peas, tea, milk, sugar, bread and cookies. They also organized a Sai Olympics where everyone played fun games with the children. Both adults and children sang uplifting spiritual songs, after which children were served a delicious breakfast. Volunteers from the Almaty Sai Center removed garbage from the banks of the Malaya Almatinka River in the scorching heat. They also enthusiastically participated in an online Zonal conference.
