Bernard Carvalho spend his days at bus stops

GOA: Homeless and partially blind due to cataract in both eyes, Bernard Carvalho would spend his days loitering and sleeping on the road or at bus stops. In November 2019, he was rescued and now, less than a year later, he is emotionally and physically in a much better state following a cataract surgery on one eye. When he was admitted to the Street Providence Goa home, he was highly stubborn and difficult to manage. He just could not control his bowel movements and would mutter and abuse the caretakers.

“Bernard’s motivation level was very low. He understood and believed that nothing good can come from him. To compound this belief of his, the caregivers were getting stressed, bathing and cleaning him daily,” said social worker, Donald Fernandes who also runs a food bank for the homeless. It was after a month that they realised that he was unable to see due to cataract, thus giving them an insight into his agitated mind. “Thanks to one of our food bank volunteers who took Bernard to a doctor in Margao to check his eyes and be prepared for the operation, we managed to get one eye operated free of cost,” Fernandes said.
