World Goa Day Charity Picnic

The Goan Overseas Association will be celebrating World Goa Day on Saturday July 24th, 2010 at Centennial Park (AREA 7). This is our International Charity Picnic under the Charitable Portfolio of the G.O.A. and funds collected will be sent to Mombasa, Kenya to assist Ms. Roseleen DeSouza.

Ms. Roseleen DeSouza resides in Mombasa, Kenya and has battled medical conditions for many months. Most recently she has been diagnosed with cancer, which has required hospitalization, medication and chemotherapy. All of which have exhausted her medical insurance. Roseleen has three siblings, one sister lives in Toronto (Marina/Prip DeSouza).

Currently, Roseleen is going through radiation treatment (in Mumbai). On her previous trips to Mumbai, she was able to take someone with her as she required assistance. This means 2 air tickets, hotel accommodation and food. Her funds are now exhausted and she has to travel to Mumbai on her own. Unfortunately, she has no family or friends in Mumbai to assist her. Her family has assisted with the payment of some of her bills which have amounted to approximately $10,000.00

As an Association, we would like to pull together and assist Roseleen in an effort to alleviate her financial burdens so that she can focus on her recovery.

This note is from a friend of Roseleen's in Mombasa (Jennifer DeSouza)

This may not be appropriate for you to know, but I would like you all to know that before Roseleen had these medical problems, she was always there to help sick people and visit them whether in hospitals or in their homes with something they could eat. Her visits to people were very much appreciated by all. Even if they lived far, she would make sure she went to see them. Now it is our turn to assist her. I know God is keeping Roseleen under His Loving Care and guiding you all to assist her.

If you are not able to attend the fundraiser picnic but wish to assist Roseleen, you can send in a donation. Kindly make cheques payable to the Goan Overseas Association (with a note in the memo field re: Roseleen DeSouza), mail to Seira Furtado. 5461 Bestview Way, Mississauga, Ontario L5M 0B1.
