STREET PROVIDENCE TRUST GOA takes off the streets 2 Goan homeless men, one elderly man & one youth. 
☆ 1. Hanumant Chanekar is from Raia , Salcette as he says, elderly Goan man and is using a stick to move around. 
One month back late night he was picked up by the police / reached the Police @ Mapusa Police Station all tired, sick, stressed & lonely. 
We requested Mapusa Police to kindly admitt him for a few days into the hospital which they did and did not shoo him / drive him away . 
District Hospital Mapusa did a good job by treating him for a month. 
See his picture , before and after 1 month. 
Two days ago I am given to understand that he decided to leave the hospital and started wandering. 
Bang , he was picked up by Colvale Police station on the highway wandering along. 
We took him in today. 
Incase any one recognises  him and his family , pls let me know through whatsapp only on 8380097564 . 
We have experienced great understanding and compassion between personal of Colvale & Mapusa Police Station especially regarding goan homeless people. 
☆ 2. A Young goan boy from Alto Dabolim , walks for over 75 days around Goa searching for place to stay. 
Comes from a family but his parents and his brother don't want him at home. 
For over 3 years he was in another home . 
But not sure why he left by end June 21. 
He is a bit aggressive and is slightly complicated. 
Speaks good English. 
He approached many police stations but most of them did not entertain him as I assume he has some past history which all stations are aware off. 
10 days back he called me. 
We took him in and he slept for like 7 days non stop . 
Can't image how , where and how many kms he walked in 75 days searching for help . 
He says he slept at bus stops , road side, gardens,  etc  . 
At times he eat nothing for 2 to 3 days and this was all during the rains . 
Strong man . 
Anyway he is now relaxed and back to doing some basic work. 
But still weak and exhausted. 
We know his family but we can't do much . 
Only prayers and blessings upon his family . 
We as an NGO are there helping the homeless street people in Goa 24*7, 365 days , last 4 years. 
We also pick abandoned people from hospitals and health centres . 
Our services are free of charge for the homeless and the street people. 
Everyday we are flooded with such requests and we always try to help . 
Some cases require only Police intervention especially when one is on the streets and is unknown as legal paperwork is very important. 
If you know any such goan people ( 1st priority) either on the streets or in depression or mentally unsound mind or just abandoned , do let me know only thru WHATSAPP on 8380097564. 
No calling please 
We will study the matter and surely help if we can , but on case to case basis 
We require your support and help to reach out to them who are HELPLESS & homeless. 
Support us in whatever way you can.
