The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched – they must be felt within the heart. We have been experiencing this everyday by taking part in these programs and sharing our LOVE for these tender heart children.
Nine years back on this very day, July 5th 2012, we started the breakfast programme for 50 school children in a remote village by name Doddabelle (off mysore road), Kengeri – South Bangalore.
Today, Sri Sathya Sai Annapoorna Trust (the trust was officially formed in 2015) with the support from 500 volunteers has taken up this very unique program of providing FREE morning nutrition to over 500,000 school going children across 6000+ govt schools in 17 States and 3 Union Territories.
It inspires and motivates us a lot when we see such selfless volunteers participate daily in the program and create a People’s movement (Jan Andolan). Going to the village by 6.30am in the morning and serving hot and fresh breakfast for these children has become a daily habit for many of our supporting volunteers.
Similar service initiatives have been initiated in 6 other countries namely Indonesia, Sri Lanka , Malayasia, Thailand, Nigeria, Australia.
Even during the current pandemic times, our volunteers continue to be in touch with the beneficiary children supporting their parents by providing needy ration supplies, education and healthcare support.
1. One Month Dry Ration supplies have been provided 125,000 beneficiary families, spread over the last 18 months
2. Health Supplements in the form of SaiSure Micronutrient mix to malnourished children
3. Over 25,000 Nutrition Kits to COVID affected patients in last 3 Months
4. Oxygen Concentrators / PPE Kits and other Healthcare equipments
5. Education Support for COVID ‘Orphaned’ Children
These are our humble efforts to make a real difference to those impacted by the ongoing pandemic.
We take this opportunity to thank everyone of you for your continued support!
Samastha Loka Sukhino Bhavanthu!
May all beings in all the worlds be happy!
