Members of a Sathya Sai Centre in one of the most dilapidated areas of Mexico City conduct several service projects to help the needy. In 2002, they built a Sathya Sai Medical Clinic for medical consultations and distributing medicines. In February 2013, the volunteers started a Supplementary Sathya Sai School in the same building. Currently, 110 children ages 6–15 attend Saturday lessons on SSEHV and receive tutoring for school. The staff includes a principal and four teachers, assisted by Sathya Sai volunteers. The volunteers prepare lunch for the children; clean the classrooms, bathrooms, and yard; and maintain order when the children arrive and leave.
At the medical clinic, a doctor and nurse work daily and a psychologist serves on weekends, attending to 6,000 patients annually. The volunteers related a touching story of a teenage drug addict who was able to quit drugs, with the help of the clinic, and begin taking care of his sick mother. In August 2014, all the fixtures, furniture, and computers were stolen from this location. Sathya Sai devotees rallied together to make the necessary restitution and repairs, resulting in an upgraded facility with new equipment, improved security, and newly painted areas.
