Mrs Ruth Madeira e Pai , an Employeee , of DIRECTORATE of HEALTH SERVICES , based at PONDA health centre reaches out to a very poor Goan Mother & son who are practically homeless & penniless. 

STREET PROVIDENCE TRUST GOA , today admitts a young Goan boy Mr Pawan into our shelter home from the IPHB. 
This young goan boy and his mother are so poor that their house is attached In this picture. 
18 months back approx,  Mrs Ruth , who works for DHS , and now based at Ponda , had admitted the mother in our home and since she was very very weak we requested Josephine from Amazing Grace to look after her . 
Nice of Mrs Ruth to follow up for 18 months on this mother son duo who have actually no one to fall back for help , medical and financial support. 
Josephine obliged and the mother is still being looked after and now much much better. 
We kept Pawan with us but he decided to go back to that small home . 
Over a period of time , Mr Pawan got very very weak and went into depression  . 
One day Mrs Ruth went to visit him and was shocked to see Pawan . 
Unclean,  dehydrated,  crawling on the floor,  full of dirt and rubbish and could not stand. 
Mrs Ruth again called me . 
We volunteered to help and got Anjuna Police to help us. 
Thanks to the Anjuna Police , who got a MO & admitted Pawan into IPHB about 3 months back . 
Thanks to the Dr's at IPHB for treating him for over a couple of months now. 
Pawan is a graduate but life is cruel. 
Father used to work for the electricity dept but expired without much saving. 
Mrs Ruth is trying her level best to get the husband pension . 
One of a very sad and pathetic case of our poor goan family. 
No other relatives I can recall. 
Only two of them mother & son , and being very very poor , no one will want to take them in . 
It's a long road to no where except being in a FREE SHELTER HOME. 
This time we will see that he stays permanently so that he does not go back into depression as that house is today Fallen down. 
It's going to cost money to rebuild. 
There is no point building his home as he will not be able to look after himself as he needs some one to live with . 
If you know such poor  GOAN  people  like Pawan please let me know . 
We will study the matter and understand the problems and then will try to help. 
Some cases are not easy to handle at times. 
Sometimes it requires treatment and specialized palliative care . 
But help is possible for such cases . 
Difficult but not impossible. 
We have mastered the Art of making our care givers and support team life UNCOMFORTABLE so that these poor peolples lives can be COMFORTABLE. 
At times I just wonder, where would such people end up , if we were never in existence as an NGO. 
GOD'S plans are not easy to understand at times. 
Looking after the mentally challenged , old , bed ridden , etc FOR FREE is not an easy task today when Petrol is @ rs 105 a litre and rising daily. 
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.

We will study the matter and surely help if we can , but on case to case basis
