In early October 2023, seven SSSIO volunteers in Kyrgyzstan participated in a Zone-wide project to serve those in need in their communities. They cooked and served a delicious meal of pilaf, rice with beans, salad with vegetables, and homemade buns. They also distributed cookies, waffles, dates, and apples and distributed jackets, warm clothes, and shoes to residents of a homeless shelter. All the recipients sincerely thanked the SSSIO members for the homemade food and expressed gratitude for their loving care and support. The volunteers were grateful to their spiritual teacher, Sri Sathya Sai Baba, for blessing them with a day filled with service, a sense of upliftment, and joy.
