STREET PROVIDENCE GOA  has been issued an official license by the North Goa Collector to run a clinic / day care centre at SANGOLDA . 
From Feb 2022 , under the provision of Clinical Establishment Act 2019 , all clinics  have to be get a Registration Certificate from the respective Collector. 
Our application was pending for  a few months due to genuine reasons but the Collector was kind enough to explain the cause of the delay which was rectified and  finally the license was issued on 15.9.22 ,  the same day our 4th Free shelter Home for women was innaugrated at Cavelossim. 
Today 25.9.2922 , our Roman Catholic religious leaders at  the church service,  instruct us to be considerate to migrants/ refugees  
At Street Providence, 50% of the inmates are migrants from other states who reach Goa for jobs etc but due to many reasons end up sick, abandoned , homeless, this hardship results in them losing their sanity. 
One of my MANY DREAMS was  to start a Medical Clinic for these type of people and cater to their health issues. 
And today I am glad to see that this  DREAM  has come to pass . 
We now have our 1st Clinic 
” GAIL & DITOSA MEMORIAL MEDICAL CLINIC ” @ Sangolda and for the last 3 months we have been providing Free  Physiotherapy sessions for the homeless street people in our shelter homes. 
This was the same clinic which was innaugrated at the hands of the Social Welfare Minister of Goa , Mr SUBHASH FAL DESAI on 26.8.2022. 
We have a male and female Physiotherapist providing their time and services at this Clinic on a daily basis . 
Since we now have an official license to run a medical clinic we are keen to provide other medical services in this Clinic and  are looking for doctors who are ready to serve the poor on a weekly basis or bi weekly basis. 
We are looking for :
☆ Orthopedician
☆ Gynecologist 
☆ Psychiatrist 
☆ Counselors 
☆ General Physician 
And this is the 1st such Clinic. 
We are planning two more such clinics in the south of Goa. 
Once we get the 3 clinics running I have a bigger DREAM of starting two 10 bedded hospitals each in North & South Goa strictly catering to the poor , homeless and the migrants. 
All our services – be the shelter homes, clinics or hospitals will be absolutely FREE of cost to the poor and homeless and migrants . 
Attached a picture of our license as well as   pictures of the Physiotherapy sessions held yesterday  where out of the 11 people only 4 are goans, the rest being migrants. 
Here I add that all 11 persons are homeless, found on the streets and admitted by the authorities. 
Once again I sincerely thank  the North Goa Collector Ms Mamu Hage, who last month gave me 30 min of her precious time and heard out my request , asked me to wait a few days and issued the License to run a clinic . 
We @ Street Providence are very particular and organized in doing everything within the preview of the law and that includes acquiring all licenses and permissions in running this small but complicated operations of many many  projects under our name STREET PROVIDENCE despite the paper work being tiring and never ending with many trips for follow up. 
But it's worth the trouble just to be on the right side of the law . 
Grateful to all! 
God bless you so much
