For the beautiful path shown by Sri Sathya Sai Baba, the Sri Sathya Sai Central Trust paid a fitting tribute to the Divine Master by helping the needy, chosing the poorest of the poor from Anantapur district and Sri Sathya Sai Districts and based on their skills, choice of earning a livelihood gave sewing machines, Agriculture sprinklers, Iron box (which uses coal), Complete electrical kits, computers, wet grinders (it’s a good source of income as people use such services for making dosa, idli batter) for beneficiaries selected from 200 villages. Few of the beneficiaries were also specially abled including deaf and mute.
After facing so much hardships due to pandemic this help from the Sri Sathya Sai Central Trust was indeed like an oasis in the scorching desert, reminding the beneficiaries that Swami will never “desert” the poor and downtrodden and His Sweet nectarine stream of love is indeed a “Sai Oasis”
