STREET PROVIDENCE TRUST GOA , an NGO rehabilitating homeless street people and people with disabilities , becomes the 1st shelter home in Goa to get vaccination done right in our premises.
Today in one of our shelter homes at Assnora , 29 men were vaccinated with the 1st dose. 
24 men of the 29 men are either :
▪︎wheel chair bound , 
▪︎Amputated with Clutches ,
▪︎Incapacitated and on pampers, 
▪︎Men with mental illness,
Moving these men out of the home to a vaccination centre was next to impossible. 
♡♡ I thank the following in this order for this facility :
♡ 1. Government of Goa
