STREET PROVIDENCE TRUST GOA is back after a short break of uploading our daily work through various Social media sites. 
I took 10 days rest and rejuvenated my neck and my body. 
During these 10 days we picked up 6 goan men from different parts of Goa. 
Today we write about 2 such Goan men .👇

☆ 1. A goan man with mental disabilities brought by a Village Panchayat member from Mayem . 
This man is about 40 years , schizophrenic and hits his old and poor mother daily . 
Only 2 of them stay in a small house. 
Man was treated and admitted in IPHB for a long time and a kind hearted panch member requested us to help him get rehabilitation as once he is at home , he misses his medicines and then starts hammering his mother. 
Straight from the IPHB we admitted him into our home . 
☆ 2.  A well known RTI activist from Dharbandora notices this goan middle aged man , all unclean wandering through the streets of Dharbandora . 
He gets in touch with me for help . 
I explain him the procedure. 
This wandering man was married but his wife  left him due to excess alcohol and took the kids along. 
He used to work in the sugar factory but that too I understand got shut down. 
He has brothers & sister , but they are all having their own families and this hero only wants to drink. 
They are tired of convincing him to give up alcohol . 
His family does the paper work and we accept him into our home. 
He is not an easy man to control as he is yet to get over his family life. 
Feel sad and upset as the man willl just drink,  wander along , loose his mind,  become a vagabond and then no return once mind totally blown away. 
It's difficult days for families in the last 18 months due to the pandemic. 
People are desperate for jobs and cheap food . 
Both are not available. 
The poor goans are the worst hit and alot of poor goan families are feeling the heat and members are getting abandoned or thrown out of the house as feeding the unemployed is not viable any more for the families. 
We @ Street Providence are daily receiving calls and requests to take in such poor goan people. 
Most request are considered but paperwork takes time .
