A 70 years old goan widow picked up by STREET PROVIDENCE TRUST GOA , and in the  last 13 days, she  has been living and sleeping in the vicinity of a hospital . 
Thanks to Mapusa Police Station,  who did her verification,  we have moved her into our shelter home. 
When this case reached me 4 days back and I saw her video , I felt like crying . 
Video is in konkanni . 👇
For us religion , Caste,  creed,  which state , etc is not important. 
If it's a human and we can help , we will help,  rest I don't care and I don't ask questions. 
Quite often the cases are complicated and from families and we just can't complie with. 
First of all , she is old , a widow,  sick,  rejected,  sleeping and waiting for help in public places in the vicinity of a hospital, yet no help for 13 days. 
And everyday it's raining cats and dogs . 
Women Law officers / Pink Law officers,  all talk . 
This lady can be any one mother , grand mother   aunty , relative , etc. 
This particular area has weekly 2 to 3 homeless people loitering around . 
Lady is tired, stressed and weak . 
She had a nice clean up , warm bath and I am sure she will sleep peacefully for the next few days. 
Will look into her medical part in the next few days . 
Just incase anyone knows her or recognises her and her family let me know through whatsapp on 8380097564. 
She can stay with us as long as she wishes. 
We are in the festive season and what better way to bring a cheer on a poor homeless desperate sick goan widow rather than just walking away thinking ” it's not my concern “. 
We require your support. 
If any Government hospital in Goa has such homeless who require help after treatment in the hospital and no place for them to go , pls get in touch with me thru whatsapp on 8380097564. 
It's easy to admitt such people directly from the hospital rather finding them on the streets 
If you know such people who require help in Goa, stuck up on roads, bus stops , hospitals, gardens, etc please reach out and talk to them and see what help they require. 
Always go to the nearest police station and complain. 
We don't pick any one without proper verification by the Police. 
If our assistance is required,  pls whatsapp me on 8380097564. 
If we can help we will let you know on the spot , yes or no . 
Some cases are beyond our capacity. 
But we can try .
