Recently we admiited Mr Jay Shetye  a 48 year old man into our Stroke Recovery Unit as he  has suffered a terrible stroke on his entire left side ie both hand & leg and is homeless & he has no one here in Goa.
Lived and worked many years in Goa in the coastal area and being influenced by high life style refused to listen to his two elder married sisters who themselves are suffering from their own family issues.
About 3 weeks back I got a call from a goan doctor who works in the TB HOSPITAL Margao saying “homeless man with severe stroke is being shifted to our hospital from GMC , but he does not have TB , can u take him into your home “?
It's LENTEN SEASON & it's going to be EASTER soon & we have to be that LIGHT to people like JAY  else LENT will be only about Rituals.
It was and is going to be difficult to rehabilitate JAY as he is totally wheel bound on a pamper and incapicated but to say no was not possible.
Saying Yes has made things Challenging & expensive as one full-time care giver is required to look after and care for JAY.
Our Stroke recovery unit has already 8 such men and JAY will be the 9th person in this unit and non of these men can afford to pay their basic bills & all are wheel chair bound.
So basically our NGO foots all the bills and the grants for this home from Social Welfare Department is just Rs 2500 per person per month
If JAY had to live in a hospital imagine how much the Government would have to pay for his upkeep.
We @ Street Providence take in the most difficult, complicated & terrifying cases as that's what we are established for ” caring for the homeless “.
It will take 6 to 9 months to sort out & get JAY back to his feet,  off the wheel chair and off the pampers.
If you wish to help us with JAYs bills then please get in touch with is through whatsapp messages only on 8380097564.
All communications strictly through whatsapp messages only on 8380097564
God bless you all
