STREET PROVIDENCE gets A local Goan abandoned boy out of severe & CHRONIC depression in just 10 months using our rehabilitation program in our shelter Home.
Ganesh Shirodkar as you see in the picture and the video was in a very miserable state living in Shiroda – Ponda Area . 👇👇
Unclean, sleeping in the dirt and rubbish on the main road , no proper bath and no sanitation and totally lost his mind .
Richardson who works in Shiroda church got in touch with me in Feb 2022, after he spotted Ganesh in an unclean atmosphere.
Goa Police Led by our good friend Inspector
Mr Vijay @ Ponda police station got him picked up and we took him in .
In between he Ganesh ran away and this time reached Borim .
Since he is young and not able to live by himself we started searching for him .
We requested SP @ Goa Police , Mr V Borkar who hails from Shiroda to put his picture on the Shiroda groups which he did willingly and within 24 hours we were able to take him of the streets and back to our Home.
Ganesh is highly favored and blessed that he was taken off the streets and the dark into the light inspite of him running away from our home.
Today Ganesh is a changed man .
Medication, follow up at IPHB , nutrition, Physiotherapy sessions, light labour jobs in the shelter home, daily bath and daily change of clothes is what makes Ganesh a fully changed and renewed person.
But on medication and if stopped or missed he will go back to his old self.
Lots of people in our shelter Home worked on Ganesh to stabilize him starting from :
☆ 1. Sapnesh – who took the trouble to find him after he escaped and see that the treatment is done properly.
☆ 2. Douglas – who takes care of all the IPHB follow-up and medical examination every month
☆ 3. All the different care givers in all our men's home where Ganesh was rehabilitated
☆ 4. The Doctors @ IPHB who attended to him every month.
Rehabilitation of such CHRONIC & HYPER people suffering from mental disabilities is our FORTE & no case is difficult to handle as we know that IPHB will back us up in case we need to admitt into IPHB for few days.
IPHB is a big blessings to such persons with mental Disabilities as well as to our NGO .
It's a total team work in all our SHELTER HOMES .
Today my estimate says there are close to 600+ such goan people suffering from chronic depression and abandoned by the family due to poverty or no support to get the monthly medication and these are only in villages.
Take the cities in Goa and you have easily close to another 300 to 400.
And these numbers are rising and rising fast and no one is addressing these issues as there are no FREE SHELTER HOMES FOR DISABILITIES.
We have mastered the ART of caring and getting back on track hundreds of people suffering from severe & chronic depression & mental disabilities.
ITS A FREE SERVICE TO THE POOR & HOMELESS
WE DARE TO DREAM THE IMPOSSIBLE & WE SEE IT AS a SERVICE & not as a FAVOUR.
Our strike rate is 95% and the time period to bring out a CHRONIC case to normalcy is 6 to 9 months.
No rocket science.
Just the WILLINGNESS & FAITH that the JOB is done & achieved.
We never look at the stage or at the current situation of any person we take into our Home.
But we look behind the stage or infront of the stage and speak the word what we belive the person will be like once recovered.
Never will any of our staff or care givers be grumbling that this patient will never recover.
WORDS have POWER & all good seeds and good words have to bring FRUIT .
You too can help such poor goan men & women in Goa incase you see such cases in your villages & cities
Get in touch PLEASE THROUGH whstsapp only on 8380097564 & explain the area and the picture of the person and the locality.
A team will investigate and the local POLICE will be involved & instructions will be given how to proceed.
God bless you all
