Yesterday 15.9 2022 was Sr Fatima Birthday , and Sr is also the Superior General Of FMCK congregation and Sr Fatima has been the reason , that today our NGO runs 4 free shelter homes for abandoned women.
Over a cup of tea with Sr Fatima approx 5 years ago discussing about homeless street women was how our 1st such shelter home for homeless street women was started and that too in a convent owned by FMCK.
♡♡♡ Thanks to Mrs Deepali Naik. DIRECTOR, Women & Child Development, Government of Goa for supporting our shelter homes for the homeless.
Mrs Deepali understands the need for homes to rehabilitate the homeless street women in Goa.
♡♡♡ Also thanks to Police Inspectors :
Mr Filomeno Costa @ Colva P Station &
Mr Tukaram Chavan @ Cuncolim P Station
who attended the innaugration along with
Mrs Auda Viegas., who runs One stop Centre at Margao for women in distress.
This home can comfortably hold 20 ladies and will serve alot of Police stations in South Goa .
Today our NGO has ladies and gents homes for the homeless in both: North & South Goa and help is just a stone throw away.
I sincerely thank our volunteers in South Goa namely:
☆ Orlando Mesquita ,
☆ John Baptist &
☆ Akash Pednekar
who have agreed to work along with our staff Akshay Dessai in taking care of this Home run by Sr Mariya & her other nuns .
Shelter homes for homeless means ” ENDLESS HOSPITAL TRIPS , especially since most of the homeless women are suffering from mental disabilities “.
A special appreciation to Sr Vandana , Provincial of FMCK & her counselors of nuns for allowing our NGO to use this home at Cavelossim.
If you reading this post reside in Goa and are aware of any homeless women ( or men ) in need of Shelter, food or medication and who is suffering from any sort of mental & physical disabilities please approach the nearest police station and see that the police are involved to get the homeless to our homes which are right across Goa .
Once again Mrs Deepali Madam thanks for all the commitment and support pledged to all our 4 women shelter homes for the homeless and abandoned street women.
God bless you all
