STREET PROVIDENCE TRUST, GOA , today gets off the streets of Panjim , a young homeless man suffering from HIV & CANCER as told to our team by him.
A few days we were informed about this man aged about 40 years, suffering from HIV & CANCER , that he is badly in need of a place to stay as his health is deteriorating.
Infact last week he went to pick his HIV medicines from the ART center at Gmc and he was provided the same.
Dirty clothes, very sick, sleeping in the panjim bus stop or at the temple and desperate for help.
We requested Mahesh , from an NGO called Zindagi , who works for HIV infected in Goa for many many years now to investigate into this matter.
♡♡ Mahesh Govekar , from an NGO called Zindagi is and has been sincerely working in Goa for the HIV infected without much noise for many many years.
Mahesh made two visits to the bus stop and confirmed that this man needs help badly.
Today with the help of Mahesh , Panjim police & out team, we picked up this man and took him for a covid test to Chicalim Health Centre .
Covid tests results were negative and later we admitted him into our home for HIV men .
Difficult, risky, complicated and delicate service to offer while picking up an homeless who is HIV & CANCER affected , but some one needs to offer help to such homeless and sick people.
We fit the bill .
Few days rest for him and then trips to hospitals and doctors to understand what cancer he is suffering from.
Thanks to all who took interest in this homeless man , we were able to rehabilitate him .
There are many many such homeless men out there in the cities of Goa , looking for shelter as they have lost basic jobs due to the pandemic .
Feel sad , but space is a constraint as we are over loaded.
We are trying our level best daily to find a big place to rehabilitate many homeless men.
That does not stop us from reaching out to the homeless in Goa.
If you know any old abandoned or run down Government building not In residential area , please let me know.
We can approach the government to allow us to use such premises otherwise the homeless will be out there.
Through my visits and trips across the major cities of Goa , I understand that there are close to 500+ homeless just having no place to go .
No one is concerned about these homeless as I understand that they have no voting rights.
Compassion is what we give to the homeless and sick.
And majority of these homeless can never help us in any way and we too expect nothing from them as we are providing AGAPE to them .
We pick from hospitals, police stations, streets, etc all types of homeless , sick and people with disabilities who have no place to go and rehabilitate and care for them.
We require your support and help to reach out to them .
Support us in whatever way you can.
