Bereavement & Repatriations
GWS has been arranging repatriations of deceased Goans back to their motherland at the request of families In Goa for a few years now. We have a “fixed fee” agreement with Rowland Brothers International who arrange the airlift to Dabolim after they have been blessed by the Goan Chaplain.
Where families cannot afford the cost, we step in and initiate a fund-raising campaign. Our last repatriation to Fatorda, Salcete, was of Alisha Pereira which was effected on 2 June 2017.
In March 2017, we raised funds and organised the funeral of Gilly Mendonca who passed away in Southall.
