STREET PROVIDENCE GOA, in collaboration with FMCK nuns (St Clare Province) and dedicated volunteers, has established 18 collection centers across Goa and one collection center in Sindhudurg district, South Maharashtra, for the MANIPUR RELIEF initiative.
Please find attached the list of collection centers in Goa and one in Sindhudurg district.
Our collection points are located in the following talukas:
Additionally, a list of relief items to be donated is also attached.
There is a significant demand for sleeping mats and milk powder.
We kindly request that you support us by providing clean, usable, and appropriate items.
Our Food Bank is already procuring food grains in Assam and Manipur, which are then delivered to the relief camps in Manipur through the District Collector and The Archdiocese of Imphal.
Furthermore, we are directly sending generic medicines from Delhi to Manipur, which we are purchasing at a highly discounted rate for this noble cause.
In Manipur, we have employed two full-time individuals who are working on behalf of our NGO.
We are closely aware of the ground reality as we have been engaged in relief efforts in Manipur for nearly two weeks.
According to our staff's update today, the consignment of materials is expected to have reached Kangpokpi and will then proceed to a place called Pinjang.
However, we are currently facing delays due to a rockslide along the Dimapur Kohima highway, which has disrupted the transportation route. It is expected to be resolved in a couple of days.
Inspired by the urgency of the situation, we have gathered a dedicated team of volunteers who have graciously agreed to serve as collection points in Goa for relief materials for MANIPUR.
Once we have gathered all the necessary materials, our intention is to load trucks and send them to the relief committee teams working in Manipur, with the support of the district collectors and the Archdiocese of Imphal.
We, at Street Providence Goa, humbly request you to contribute through in-kind donations or monetary support via cheque/NEFT to aid our relief work in Manipur.
All your donations are eligible for tax exemption under Section 80G of the Income Tax Act, and we kindly request you to provide a copy of your PAN card.
Please coordinate in advance and schedule an appointment with the collection points if you wish to donate relief materials in kind.
However, please note that we are not collecting clothes.
For any queries or doubts, kindly reach out via WhatsApp at 8380097564.
We appreciate your understanding and cooperation in avoiding phone calls.
Over the past six years, we have undertaken several relief projects, but this one presents unique challenges due to the considerable distance of 4000 kilometers and the existing roadblocks.
However, we believe that with the support of generous benefactors like yourself, we can achieve our goals.
We dare to dream, knowing that all good things are achievable through acts of kindness and concern, even in the most adverse conditions, as long as they are carried out with the right intentions and straight from the heart.

God bless you abundantly.
