Sri Sathya Sai Baba Service Activities

  Drinking Water Project at NTT - Indonesia
Report August 2005

Sri Sathya Sai Organization of Indonesia is currently conducting a water project at the village of Mbuliloo, Nusa Tenggara Timur. The scarcity of water supply in this devastated area had forced the villagers to survive by only relying upon a well of 5-cm depth which is at a distant location.

People in this forgotten-remote area had been seeking for relief, but yet dare not hope. At last, the agonies of the villagers caught the attention of a Sai devotee, who conveyed the situation to the Sai Organization. Actions were immediately taken by sending a volunteer, as a representative, to supervise and do hands-on monitoring for this water project with the help of the local people.

In that area, there was only one well available which was previously a private property. Sai Study Group managed to negotiate with the owner to take over the ownership of the well, and then started the mission for the benefit of all.

A water tank was built to collect water from the well. From the tank, 900 pipes were used to channel the water to houses which covered approximately 7 kms in distance; to provide clean water to more than 234 families.

At last, the well has finally relieved the people in the area from the prolonged suffering due to water scarcity. It was the most precious gift for the people of this village. The local authorities, on behalf of the villagers, then submitted a formal letter of appreciation to express their deepest gratitude to Sri Sathya Sai Organization Indonesia, which reads as follows:

Testimonial Letter

Mbuliloo, 2nd May 2005,

To: Yayasan Sri Sathya Sai

Dear Sir or Madam:

With this letter, we, the people from village Mbuliloo, Wolowaru district, Ende Nusa Tenggara Timur (NTT) Province of Indonesia, would like to express our deepest gratitude to Sri Sathya Sai Organization that has helped us overcoming our major problems in daily life. In our village of Mbuliloo, especially in 5 areas: Nggaja, Kuruene, Nuamuri, Batembue and Mbuliloo, the people here had struggled to cope with lack of fresh drinking water day-by-day, without any hope on how to raise fund in order to provide safe clean water.

The kind Sri Sathya Sai Organization finally came to rescue, and made all possibility became possible. Previously, we could only used to wish as we realized there was no way we could afford it; being poor & simple people. All those times we managed to live, relied upon using the well in distant location, which had a water level of toe-deep to be shared with more than 234 families.

All of a sudden, our wish came true when our beloved brother, Abdul Syukur Boya from Sri Sathya Sai Organization came to deliver a great news and funding to be used to provide a safe drinking water to our village.

We were touched and deeply grateful. We could never imagined in this world full of politics turmoil and social crisis, there is still people out there who mindfully care to help small helpless people like us. We took this opportunity to express how delightful and thankful we are to Sri Sathya Sai Organization that has given the greatest kindness gift we could never be able to repay. Therefore, we pray to the Almighty Lord to always bless and support Sri Sathya Sai Organization in all activities and great work they conducted.

May God returns all the kindness you had given us for He is the Greatest Love of all.

Many thanks from all of us, the people of Village Mbuliloo.
