One of Sathya Sai Baba's greatest service projects has been his amazing on-going project to supply fresh drinking water to over 700 remote villages in rural India. The people of these impoverished villages had for many years been without drinkable water until 1995, when the Sri Sathya Sai Central Trust began construction on this massive undertaking. True Christianity means selflessly serving others and this ten-minute film is the story of his wondrous miracle that solved this long-felt need.
This video was produced by Gene Massey and Nirmala Film Services for the Sri Sathya Sai Central Trust.
WHAT'S UNIQUE ABOUT SATHYA SAI WATER PROJECT?
The Sri Sathya Sai Drinking Water Project is the largest social benefit project undertaken anywhere in the world by a private charitable organization.
The Trust in earlier years had established rural Drinking Water Supply Projects in the districts of Ananthapur, benefitting over 1.2 million people, in the Medak District, benefiting over 450,000 people, in Mahboobnagar District benefitting over 350,00 people, and rural people in tribal areas of East and West Godavari. The Sai Water projects covered about 1,500 villages. These projects were completely executed by the Trust at their cost and then handed over to the Government of Andhra Prades,. The Central Trust also modernized the Telugu Ganga Canal to ensure supply of Krishna water as contracted by the Government of Andhra Pradesh to the Government of Tamil Nadu for Chennai city, benefitting lakhs of Chennai city population.
