Why We Do
Sri Sathya Sai Baba always propounded that children are the future of the society, the nation and the world, and therefore every child born on earth is entitled to three fundamental rights absolutely free: the right to nutrition, the right to education, and the right to good health. These three rights are fundamental to every child born in any country to any race, religion, caste, creed, it does not matter. They are the seeds that are to be sown in order to have the harvest tomorrow. Therefore, it is a responsibility of the society to collectively look after its future, which are the children. This is the premise behind all the services at the Sri Sathya Sai Sarla Memorial Hospital being offered totally FREE of any charges.
To provide these fundamental rights to every child is not merely the responsibility of the parents, the government, but it is the responsibility of the society at large and as long as these three units – the Samaja (society), the Sarkara (governments), and Sanstha (institutions) –work together much can be done. The effects of education will be diminished if the child’s hunger is not satisfied. And nutrition therefore becomes a stepping stone to good education.
