STREET PROVIDENCE TRUST GOA , working towards the rehabilitation of alcoholic & homeless street people in Goa for the last 4 years , today presents you one goan man totally transformed in our shelter home. 
☆ Surya Chari , 60 + years,  Goan man , but got terribly lost due to alcohol . 
Has a family he says. 
Stayed with us almost 3 times in the last 4 years 
but that urge took him back to the streets. 
Last year, Oct 2020 , was so bad,  that his entire body was in Scabbies , dehydrated,  hungry and waiting to kick the bucket. 
♡♡ Thanks to Napolean Fernandes our Volunteer from Mapusa who took alot of trouble to convince Surya to get off the streets and convince me to give Surya another chance . 
Surya was really bad,  unclean, stinking and very very weak . 
If not picked in time from the streets , he would have not been around today . 
Photo attached of him that day in Oct 2020. 
Got him all cleant, medication & nourishment and back into shape . 
He does not have one eye . 
Its totally lost. Dead eye . Can't be fixed . 
Other eye had cataract which is much natural when u r on the streets. 
♡♡ Thank to Rotary Club of Mapuca for undertaking the cataract operation,  today Surya can see perfectly fine with one eye only . 
Got him a good pair of Spectacles and today Surya and Mario ( the man who we uploaded yesterday,  who lost his one leg and  who could not see in both eyes ) are cooking in one of the homes for 15 men all 3 meals. 
Attached a 2 min video of Surya cooking and talking in konkani as of today . 👇
We all took alot of trouble in speaking,  counseling,  showing Surya the reality,  that he needs to decide once and for all what he wants in life . 
I have observed in the last 4 years of the operation,  the younger men from other states ask for help,  but once they get their strength back say in 4 to 5 months , they go back to the streets as they feel they can earn money but end up living a miserable life resulting in death due to alcohol & tobacco. 
Whereas the elderly men and our Goan men some what stay back. 
Our focus is now more on Goan homeless men and men with disabilites  as there are too many migrants coming to Goa for work or sightseeing , getting into drugs and alcohol and then ending up on the streets. 
Even after helping them they refuse to go back home but again end up drinking on the streets. 
Its very frustrating and demoralizing for me when I see them back. 
Like Surya we have about 80 such more men all from the streets and 20 women who are all old and abandoned, who today are alive and active . 
Most if them are mentally challenged and on medication . 
They have a place to stay and warm food to eat. 
Watch the video and also see his picture when we picked him in Oct 2020. 
Huge difference.
