SAI International lends support to the Cyclone affected

SAI International started a humble offering initiative for the cyclone affected people of Chigrortola slum near the OTV Office, Bhubaneswar on Friday, May 10, 2019. The severe cyclonic storm Fani which left a trail of devastation in most parts of Odisha has also badly paralysed the capital city of Bhubaneswar.

Around 650 people residing in the area were served with lunch, followed by clean drinking water through community kitchen. The lunch programme continued till normalcy was restored in the area. The enthusiastic students and staff of SAI International selflessly and whole heartedly served the people with great care and enthusiasm. The young SAIoneers were deeply touched by the plight of the slum dwellers. The inhabitants of the slum, especially the women and children expressed their happiness for the timely help.

LENDING A HELPING HAND EVERYWHERE WE GO!!!

International Day of Service @ Missionaries of Charity

59093876_2467267019950981_3414250016770883584_o

International Day of Service was celebrated by Senior Going Global Club and Kids For Peace Chapter of SAI International School at the Missionaries of Charity – Mother Teresa Center. A small group of students spent the morning passing out snacks and juice to the elderly, physically and mentally challenged residents.

Afterward they spent time speaking, laughing, singing and even dancing. It was truly a heartwarming way to spend the morning in the service of others. Dancing was by far the favourite activity. Both the students and the elderly danced with big smiles from ear to ear. Even “Rangabhati” was sang vigorously as most the residents knew the song by heart.

They also donated nonperishable items like biscuits and crackers along with much need toiletries.

Visiting this place is both happy and sad at the same time, torn between smiles and the feeling that these people are left with no one. Hats off the the MTC Sisters who sacrifice daily to provide their minute by minute needs.

International Day of Services is a SAIONEER favourite. The thrill of stepping out of your regular routine to help another human being is one we all love.

Let’s end with the words of Mother Teresa herself “Spread love everywhere you go. Let no one ever come to you without leaving happier.”

“25 SMILES” with Bugin Ho Tribal School

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The Unwind CRS department hosted 25 students from Bugin Ho Tribal School. The school sent a bus to pick up the group at 8:30am arriving at UNWIND around 11:00am. Each student was matched with a SAIONEER and hosted for the day. The students went from booth to booth playing games and eating snacks. The group of students really enjoyed playing “Trick or Treat” a giant board game with giant dice. It was an amazing experience watching these students truly enjoy themselves. Seeing them smile was defiantly an event highlight.
