STREET PROVIDENCE TRUST GOA , is looking to lease,  rent or buy ( with your support) this wooden house as attached with this post. 
With curfew in Goa and cases rising,  homeless and street people will be badly hit.
Last year we managed during the entire lockdown to take off the streets more than 100 such men (may be even more)
Last year during the lockdown we were In Margao home , and there were many old classrooms which we used as isolation for 14 days for many many homeless men for over 6 months. 
That's the reason last year , non of our homeless men got infected. 
Yes we has no covid infected men in any of our homes last year as we took alot of trouble in fighting the virus with strict rules, checks and procedures. 
And we were the only NGO during the entire lockdown,  accepting freely homeless street men. 
This year we don't have that liberty as we are not in Margao anymore. 
With the current strain not showing sign of much symptoms like last year , our shelter homes will need to take extra caution. 
With no isolation rooms available in any of our shelter homes the only option available is to install such wooden temporary structure. 
Per wooden home, 6 such men who are on the streets can be isolated for 14 days before admitting them into our main home. 
This wooden structure will be in the vicinity of the home. 
Basic infrastructure like 1 sink , 1 toilet cum bathroom with a light and a fan .
Lets assume it takes min 6 months to normalize,  we can comfortably get off 72 such men .
6 men = 14 days 
12 men = 1 month 
72 men = 6 months 
Otherwise we will have to stop taking homeless men off the streets as the risk is too much. 
Already Doctor is on his toes with few men having slight temperature at times. 
Everyone men is put on inhalation 3 times a day with twice a day temperature checks.
This 1 hut costs approx Rx 4 lacs with complete installation. 
This is how we are prepared to help those on the streets in the coming months. 
@ Rs 5500 per men, (Rs 400000 ÷ 72 men) you can have enjoy that good sense of humanity that you too played your part in your home by supporting us .
Otherwise we might have to think twice before directly getting homeless men of the streets. 
Too , too much of risk involved. 
All our full time staff have families with young children as well as elderly parents. 
One way our staff health has to be safe guarded & on the other side the homeless,  especially the type of men we pick will need to get into a shelter. 
Any other type of arrangements are ruled out as our homes are on rent and constructing new rooms are not possible In today scenario. 
If there is any big old building or far flung home to accommodate homeless men then we can accept on lease or rent.
We @ Street Providence are committed during this very crucial stage of the pandemic  to help the old , sick , abandoned homeless street men in Goa .
Plus now touching any homeless person is risky due to COVID , but yet we need to show and live HUMANITY .
