STREET PROVIDENCE TRUST GOA thanks our benefactor G.O.A., Victoria , Inc , Australia, for supporting us financially during the 2nd wave and helping 21 poor goan families with new plastic sheets during this current rains battering Goa.
Goan Overseas Associstion, ( G.O.A) , Victoria , Inc , Australia has been supporting us for close to 2 years .
♡♡ Thanks to Mr Gerard Lobo from G.O.A for being the link between the committee and us.
This year too we received their donation.
The donation was used for these 2 purposes benefitting our poor families:
1. Today we have ordered plastic sheets to cover 21 homes in 3 areas of rural Goa where poor goans whose roofs are devastated due to the torrential rains needed temporary relief.
As Mr Akash Pednekar & his team have been distributing dry ration for June 21 in Curchorem, Sanguem & Quepem areas they came across various poor families badly in need of plastic sheets.
Mr Akash & his team identified all 3 communities in equal nos & In equal areas.
☆ 7 Catholic families
☆ 7 Hindu families
☆ 7 Muslim families
☆ Curchorem 7 families
☆ Sanguem 7 families
☆ Quepem 7 families.
We have committed and confirmed the orders for 21 such families, ranging between 20 Mtrs to 25 Mtrs plus rope per home, to tie the plastic sheets.
2. In June 21 , we had volunteered to provide free meals to those poor people who were tested positive and we provided approx 800 such meals to various families from Navtara group of restaurants.
For July 21 to we are still accepting registration for free meals for those affected with Covid.
Both these bills have been paid from the donation received from Goan Overseas Associstion, ( G.O.A) , Victoria , Inc , Australia and we are thankful for the support.
Daily we are providing various free services across Goa , in the fight against hunger & homelessness and such services are only possible due to generous benefactors and their donations .
Lots of poor Goan families across rural Goa in need of help and we are grateful to Mr Akash Pednekar and his boys for their time, effort & commitment in reaching out to those in rural Goa across these 3 areas.
Volunteers are our backbone & mostly all our projects are through Volunteers and we thank God for each of these volunteers who silently play their part In the service of the poor and needy.
If you wish to contribute to providing plastic sheets as there are still more poor goan families asking for help during this monsoon then please let me know.
You can even give us the plastic sheets and rope.
