The month of March involved many activities undertaken by the youth which were filled with energy and enthusiasm.
Distribution of Meals
It was brought to the attention of the youth, that there were people working as car cleaners in the neighbourhood were facing a very challenging phase in their lives due to the current lockdown. The Sai Youth and a few balvikas children immediately sprang into action. They themselves cooked nutritious, wholesome meals, packed it with great care and distributed to about 35 beneficiaries.
One of the beneficiaries who received the food kit expressed his gratitude by sending a video of a song to a young volunteer. This song says,
What type of a rich man are you who doesn’t care about the poor people?
Blessed is the hand that giveth than the one that taketh
seva of snacks distribution
The youth have been actively participating in distribution of evening snacks comprising of a fruit, a packet of biscuit and juice to the cleaning staff.
Many volunteers were readily contributing the items needed, in no time. This month 280 snack meals were distributed in total.
The beneficiaries expressed their immense gratitude and happiness to the young volunteers as they were touched by their service filled with love and kindness. These youth are now driven with only one intention to help more and more people in need! This was clearly visible as the youth were prompt and eager to do the seva.
A phenomenal seva of needy ones in Uganda
The youth have also been instrumental in the execution of a phenomenal seva which transcended the geographical boundaries and touched the lives of the needy in the country of Uganda.
One of our brothers during his office hours noticed a security staff who always accepted tea and snacks offered to him with great pleasure but was never seen buying even a cup of tea on his own. A casual conversation with the security staff revealed that he could not afford to waste even a single penny on his personal needs. He said that whatever money earned if not sent to his family away in Uganda, they won’t be able to have two square meals a day.
Listening to the plight of the people in Uganda, the Sai Youth from Middle East were deeply touched. This reminded them that there are millions around the world who are hungry and suffering and it is by helping them that the lives will be sanctified.
Soon, the Sai Love Kits wrapped with love and compassion reached not only the family of the security guard but also to the hands of many such needy ones in his community in the country of Uganda. The youth themselves coordinated the whole initiative and arranged the groceries which was locally purchased and distributed. Each Sai Love Kit can feed two meals a day for a person. Ten families were provided with the Kits wherein 60 people were benefitted. Total of 3600 meals were provided to these families.
