Region 3 - "Youth Eggstravaganza": Easter Egg Seva!

Om Sai Ram!

"All service should be regarded as an offering to God, and every opportunity to serve should be welcomed as a gift from God. When service is done in this spirit, it will lead to self- realization."

Sathya Sai Baba

Throughout the month of March youth across Region 3 have been gathering chocolate Easter eggs to donate to local hospitals/hospices as a youth-led service activity. This was a task that many devotees in Region 3 eagerly participated in. From the outset we had set a target of donating a 108 Easter eggs, however we soon began to realise that our expectations were very quickly going to be exceeded!

In total we managed to donate over 210 Easter eggs to three different hospitals/hospices for children across the region. We had youth travelling across the region in order to personally deliver the Easter eggs to the following institutions:

  1. Queen's Hospital, Romford via Lennox Children's Cancer Fund
  2. Keech Hospice, Luton
  3. Great Ormond Street Hospital, London

With Swami's Grace the amount of love and effort that went into this service activity was truly inspiring.

The hospitals/hospices were all very happy and have expressed both their gratitude and hope that we can work together in the future. We will endeavour to work together and support them in the future more regularly.

This service activity has not only brought the youth and centres together, but it has also created opportunities to look into more further projects. We would like to take this opportunity to say a heartfelt thank you to all the adults, children and youth across the region who kindly and generously donated Easter eggs. We pray for the children and their families who are in hospital over Easter for happiness and good health.

Wishing you all a Happy Easter!

Subo Gunam,
On behalf of Region 3 Youth
