STREET PROVIDENCE TRUST GOA wishes you all a HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY & A VERY HAPPY FEAST on the ASSUMPTION of MOTHER MARY .
We @ Street Providence are blessed as BOOKWORM TRUST ( A registered charitable trust ) from PANJIM donated their Maruti Eco Car to our NGO .
2 weeks back we had offered our only ambulance to the PRIMARY HEALTH CENTRE @ Chimbel to be used for Covid related work and we were 1 short of a van .
Through social media we had inquired whether anyone has a ambulance to give away or any ambulance for sale. ( and we are still asking for an ambulance )
Dr Fernando Noronha ( A trustee ) who I have never met , ( but connected through social media ) WhatsApp me saying they have an MARUTI ECO CAR to give away .
We accepted this red color ECO a few days back and got the car serviced and ready to hit the roads.
This 15th August is special to STREET PROVIDENCE.
This RED ECO is come at the right time .
For the last 30 days we have a full time lady nurse ( NUN ) in our ladies home and I failed to utilized her services as the weather is playing nasty .
Exactly 15 days ago , one of our homeless man had a terrible issue with his leg and such all maggots and worms were spotted on this leg.
Our regular care giver could not manage.
Dr advised amputation but suggested a professional nurse to clean it daily so that it could be saved.
Infact a few months back when we had picked him from the street , he was advised at GMC to do the amputation.
In this COVID getting a nurse is next to impossible.
The nurse ( nun ) volunteered to step in and believe me last 7 days that man wound has improved that just today Dr was shocked that there is so much improvement . Now no amputation atleast for the moment.
But need 1 month daily dressing.
The nurse ( nun ) is in Mapusa and the man is in BATIM .
We managed to stop and adjust our regular work to move the nurse daily up and down.
But now we are looking for a volunteer to drive this RED ECO.
This Red Eco will be used every morning to dress the wounds of this man in our BATIM HOME as well distribute food to those who still stuck up on the streets of panjim & porvorim .
We have a huge quantity of medicines and surgical equipment donated to us coming from GUJARAT. ( this is for another post ).
Many homeless are still struggling on the streets.
