STREET PROVIDENCE GOA opens our shelter doors to the poorest of the poor just now and takes in total 6 very small children & 3 parents .
☆ 1 lady adult who is the mother of 3 children &
☆ 1 gents adult who is the father of 2 children &
☆ 1 lady adult who is mother of 1 child of just 11 months.
All are migrants and sleeping on streets in a city in Goa
Police rounded them up .
Thanks to our care givers for whole heartedly opening the doors and agreeing to take in these poor little children.
A warm meal was arranged from our home and all the sleeping arrangements for these little children and their mothers.
How long they will stay I don't know , what will happen tomorrow I can't tell but tonight we opened our doors and that is THE SPIRIT OF CHRISTMAS.
Christmas is about the poorest of the poor , the homeless, the migrants, the marginalised, the hungry.
Actually this is not our problem to shelter these children.
But saying no just because it's not our problem is not right .
99% of the time , If any one requires shelter and whether we have space or not ” it's always a yes” provided it's routed through the police.
No direct admission without a proper medical and proper verification.
Goa Police dropped these little children & their parents.
We have two homes in the vicinity of just 20 meters apart from each other.
Ladies home for children & ladies and
Gents home only for men.
When our NGO has so much of facilities and support from the Government, it's always YES to any request from the authorities.
I am really SCARED at the amount of homeless people In Goa at the moment which according to my sources and volunteers can be close to 700 people and rising .
I have made letters to all the City Dysps @ Goa Police as well as the North Goa Collector but sadly everyone is just quite.
Recently.about 2 to 3 weeks back, some Commissioner ordered both the COLLECTORS to get all the children off the streets and into shelter homes .
I really don't see that happening and I am not sure when that is going to happen and where are the shelter homes for these street little children with their parents.
Supreme Court order clearly states ” little children can't be separated from the mothers “.
It's a really difficult journey in life for the poor and marginalised and I not sure what holds good for such poor people who live and stay on the streets.
As for me it's always a pleasure to be of help to anyone and everyone who is homeless provided the admission is done through the authorities and with complete paperwork.
God bless you all
