A late night rescue today.  Got a call from the police informing us of a lady wandering around in the bus stand since afternoon and who seems mentally unsound.

28.07.2022 VIJAY KUMAR RESCUED

Another brother joins our family at White Doves. Vijay Kumar says he's a driver he lost all his belonging when in transit in Mangalore. Now he seems to have lost his mind. Hope he recovers soon. We were told by the good Samaritan Jeevan that he has been living in the bus stand since three months.
Vijay Kumar is a native of Andhra Pradesh.

At first he was diffident and resisted our attempts to coax him into coming with us since he has a habit of eating tobacco.
Once he saw the White Doves environment he sobered down and knew he was in safe hands.
It will take some time for him to be weaned of his tobacco addiction.
