Yesterday within flat 20 hours we @ STREET PROVIDENCE GOA, took in 3 homeless & abandoned ladies through Goa Police @ Colvale, Anjuna & Vasco stations.
Infact at 9 pm yesterday there was another,
4th request again through Colvale cops but we had to refuse as it was too stressful.
☆ Case 1 we had uploaded yesterday and today the cops dropped her back across the border.
☆ Case 2.
This is a goan senior citizen from NAGOA Bardez
Tai Deepa Bugde.
Says she is lonely and her husband died and was staying on rent.
Due to medical issues was admitted in District hospital Mapusa and later on shifted to GMC for an eye cataract operation.
On completing the operation she came back to District Hospital which caught the attention of the cops who did the necessary paperwork and we took her in last night at 8pm.
Just in case anyone recognises her.
☆ Case 3
This Rajasthani woman Madhu Kashyap was picked up by Vasco police as she was begging / living on the streets @ 4 pm.
We were requested to provide rehabilitation which we agreed.
At 8.30 pm , She was dropped at our Cavelossim shelter home by the Vasco Police.
With 4 men's & 4 women's shelter homes across both districts in Goa , we are continously requested by many to rehabilitate and care for the old , the homeless, the bed ridden , the people with mental & physical disabilities as well as genuine poor goans , which we do.
And all our homes are strategically located for any police station in Goa to drop the homeless.
Tomorrow Monday 24.4 23 , we have 3 men to be rehabilitated from the Government Hospital of which one is a old goan man who has been living in this hospital for over a year and crawls on his legs and hands.
Currently we hold about 170 such people of which 70 % are ETHNIC GOANS ie about 105 are poor goans in our homes.
We don't have any issues in taking in the homeless but space is getting to be a big constraint.
Of the 170 inmates, about 150 are treated and cared for absolutely free all because of LOVELY, COMMITTED & CARING BENEFACTORS who send in their donations Month after month, year after year.
As of today only one of our women shelter home gets government funding.
Its difficult but not impossible.
♡♡♡ WE DARE TO DREAM ♡♡♡
Running a complicated operation @ Street Providence Goa is a dream which is possible due to :
☆ Grace & favour of God,
☆ Our trustees,
☆ Our committed & dedicated staff,
☆ Caring caregivers , not professional but highly committed witn hard core experience.
☆ Endless volunteers across Goa,
☆ Superb unwritten support from the Government,
☆ Generous & committed BENEFACTORS.
Most of the Goan homeless people in our homes are having genuine sad and horrible life experiences and stories which they have gone through & which makes one wonder ” how does such people actually live if there was no shelter home to care for them “.
Your support through prayers, wishes, donations or just even if you forward our messages to near and dear one is welcomed.
God bless you all
