STREET PROVIDENCE TRUST GOA rescues from the streets , this GOAN MAN and provides shelter and medication so that he survives this COVID 19.
♡ Rajaram Chodankar is a GOAN HINDU MAN from colvale aged 62 years.
I understand from him that he is unmarried and most of his family members are deceased or untraceable and his house at COLVALE has fallen down and he cant rebuild the same.
Cataract in his 1 eye, so his vision is blurred and a complete broken spectacles with the glass missing from one spectacle frame and the handle which goes over his ears is broken.
Wandering around he one day reached KHARASWAWADDO police outpost, Mapusa.
And 2 days prior to this , we had fogged the same outpost and that's how RAJARAM reached our home.
Thanks to God , that the constable at the outpost @ KHARASWAWADDO remembered Street Providence and called Sapnesh.
This is the reason Street Providence works closely with GOA POLICE.
The police are always in 1st contact with such homeless people .
If the police man / woman knows which rehabilitation home Is around to help such homeless people then PRAISE THE LORD.
Else that homeless person will just be ignored and might end up loitering here and there and finally be dead on the streets.
GOA Police @ Mapusa Police Station did all the necessary paper work ( inspite of the COVID & being stretched) and handed him door delivery to our home at Assnora.
We quarantined Rajaram for 14 days and he took good rest as he was tired , hungry, stressed , disappointed and was desperate for food, clothing, shelter, company .
We recently took him for a medical check up as well as replaced his SPECTACLES.
He requires an operation in his 1 eye and we require you incase you can to help us with the Bill's.
A simple, down to earth man , Rajaram is a cook and he wishes to be occupied the whole day .
Most of the time , I also in the past and many of you too would just drive away such people.
After all in a PANDEMIC situation no one would like to help another.
But @ STREET PROVIDENCE it's not like that.
We are at times the last stop place for such people.
We are trying to rehabihatate many more such homeless people but SPACE is the issue .
We have :
☆ Care givers
☆ Good benefactors
But No SPACE .
All houses are full.
If we do not pick up or attempt to rehabilitate, people complain to me and say ” you are only asking for donations but not helping the homeless “.
We are ready with 30 days from today to admitt 500 people more from the streets but give me the SPACE.
THE IRONY IS , WE ARE ALREADY IN A HOME WHICH CAN HOLD THESE 500 HOMELESS PEOPLE BUT WE ARE ASKED TO VACCATE WITHIN JUST 4 MONTHS OF ENTERING THIS HOME .
Very Close yet far .
500 lost souls can be looked after with free food shelter medicines.
The EVIL ONE has got the owners of this home with their EGO being the main issue.
Pray that the better sense prevails over the owners of this home as the PANDEMIC is going on and finding another home is not that easy.
The words Humanity, Poverty , poor , homeless for me is only in the HOLY BOOKS .
Today Rajaram Chodankar lives and sleeps in peace knowing he now has Street Providence as his family to spend his remaining life .
Last few weeks , our medical expenses are hitting the roof as practically daily we are taking one homeless person or the other to the hospital and doctors.
For those who are unaware, 99 % people in our homes are taken care off without any fees .
Free food clothing medication shelter.
Support us in any way you wish .
We accept donations though cheque/ NEFT
We offer 80 G exemptions on all your donations along with your pan card copy.
