The joy of being loved and cared for is in this old man smile and expression which one can see in this 1 minute video attached. 👇👇
Late 2021 , this Maharashtrain man was sleeping at a bus stop in Chicalim, Airport Road for months and that was his home .
I remember that quite a no of people called me to pick him up and I sent the team once but he ran away.
Vasco police was then contacted and finally he was handed over to us .
Quite unclean, claws like nails , huge beard , very weak , severe depression is what I can describe of him.
Never ever spoke but understood what was told to him .
Treated at IPHB and was taken regularly for evaluation and follow up every month.
Today he spoke for the 1st time and that means he is coming back to his senses and he is getting out of depression .
And if you see the video of 1 min, YOU WILL SEE THE JOY ON HIS FACE THAT HE SPEAKS A LANGUAGE WHICH THE CARE GIVER SPEAKS & that raises his confidence level.
We feel proud that Ramdev / Ashok is getting back to normal.
No one will know how long he had wandered away from his home , how he ended up in Goa , how much suffering he went through being homeless and sleeping on the streets , etc.
But now that's all the past .
Ramdev / Ashok is on the road to recovery and the very fact he is speaking is a huge achievement for our caregivers and team members who have put in alot of effort to get him out of his depression and troubles.
I still can't belive we actually got him off the streets and into our home.
It took alot of trouble to stablise Ramdev / Ashok but the effort bore the fruit .
He must be 65 to 70 years and at this age one can imagine where and how he can end up if not rehabilitated.
This service is easy if ONE HAS A LIKING FOR THE HOMELESS & PEOPLE WITN DISABILITIES.
We @ Street Providence don't consider what we do as a Favour but rather a SERVICE TO THE LAST & LEAST .
God bless you so much
