STREET PROVIDENCE TRUST GOA is committed to rehabilitating the homeless In Goa who are either in Alcohol or are suffering from disabilities, with focus more on our local goans. 
Today we present you a middle aged goan man but born in Mumbai. 
☆ Mr Walter, is educated but due to so many reasons including wrong habitshas been wandering around . 
I personally have gone atlesst twice to the streets to convince Walter to get off the streets in the last 3 years but after getting alright, he wishes to leave the home and reaches again the streets . 
Good man, but wants his freedom which most of the times back fires and we have to start the process from scratch again and again . 
Anyway in Oct 2020 , Walter ( along with Surya who we wrote about 4 days ago ) was in terrible state on the streets. 
Body full of scabbies , weak about 25 kgs in weight , totally undernourished, dazzed and wobbly in the head, lots of wounds. 
Napolean our volunteer got him off the streets by convincing him that he will not make it in the next week if he does not reach a home. 
Watch the 3 min video. 👇
We agreed to accept Walter. 
Today,  Walter is a perfect and responsible man. 
He had some rod In his shoulder which we sorted out through an operation . 
All rounder,  can cook for 40 men at one time,  bathes the old and infirmed men in the home , and disperses medicines which is prescribed for about 30 mentally challenged men in the home . 
Bathes the men who are incapicated,  changes their clothes , feeds the men , etc. 
Reads and writes English fluently as he is educated Upto 12th Std . 
Walter understands that the pandemic is creating issues for all homeless people and he has been blessed to be in a home . 
We have our issues but I keep reminding him that if he is alive today he needs to thank God. 
The issue with alcoholic people is this : 
Moment they get their strength back in a few months they feel they can face the world . 
They go to the world and meet their old friends and redevelop their old habits . 
These old habits get them back to where they were before. 
To get off Alcohol completely when one has been into it for years,  one needs to have a strong will power and should be able to face the world with the right friends and right environment. 
Detoxifying and counseling such people in the initial months requires alot of time , patience and effort. 
We feel happy when we see the labour of our hard work bearing fruits . 
Our caregivers are the backbone of our rehabilitation homes. 
It's getting really tuff Managing close to 100 homeless people with the pandemic creating alot of economic issues.
