SSSIO delegates from the northwestern region of Russia participated in an uplifting two-day regional conference. It began with a welcome address by the Zone Chair, Mr. Valery Voshchinin, and ended with a beautiful concert, ‘Flow of Love,’ featuring Russian bhajans, songs from choral performances over the years, poems, skits, parables, and gratitude video dedicated to Sri Sathya Sai Baba. On the second day, presentations were made on the conference theme, ‘Satisfaction is the most valuable wealth’ and four previously conducted study circles.

Finally, there was a moving presentation on the ‘White Dove’ service project, where wounded soldiers were provided medicines, personal hygiene products, clothes, and shoes in a military hospital near St. Petersburg. Conference delegates also wrote inspirational letters to the soldiers as part of this project.
