Region 1 - Serve the Planet 2014

As part of this years’ Serve the planet project, the devotees of region 1 came together, to pack hampers for Refuge UK- a UK charity that support women and children affected by domestic violence:

Swami has said, "A wave of service, if it sweeps over the land catching everyone in its enthusiasm, will be able to wipe off the mounds of hatred, malice and greed that infest the world." Sathya sai Speaks vol 28, page 282”

This apt quote of our dear Swami, conveys what we felt was the focus for this years’ Serve the planet project; how with unity, we are able to bring some form of hope and happiness to the children that are affected by domestic violence.

And with such thoughts we came together, to pack items which included note book, pens and pencils, ruler, rubber, board- games, calculator, colouring pencils. The evening started with a few youth, but quickly we had a large team of youth and adults, working together. In total 91 hampers were packed, all set for delivery in the coming days to the needy.

Domestic violence is truly a saddening situation for anyone, especially children. We thank Swami for the opportunity, for what we hope will bring a smile to them during difficult times.
