Medical and Community Service in Argentina

On 7th June 2014, the Sathya Sai Centres of Mendoza and Palmyra, and the Sai Group in Las Heras, Mendoza, organised a vision and dental camp in the picnic area of the Civil Association, Oratorio, Argentina. Twelve Sathya Sai devotees, one dentist, two dental students and two volunteers provided eye care and oral hygiene services to 70 people, including 40 children. Vision tests were performed for all participants and 40 pairs of eyeglasses were prescribed.

The Sathya Sai volunteers also weeded a vegetable garden and added new plantings at the picnic site. The director and a teacher from a local school, the Jorge Newbery School, participated in the activities and showed interest in Education in Human Values. It was decided to meet with the school staff in future to discuss further collaborations.
