Franciso Quadros

In conjunction with the GOAN CHAPLAINCY (London)

March 2020


Dear Friends

I am appealing to your generosity, as we are trying to raise funds to repatriate the bodies of Francisco Quadros from Nuvem (passed away on 17.3.2020) and Felizardo Da Cunha from Moira (passed away on 1 April 2020), whose deaths were from natural causes. Our target is to raise £4,200.00 and we are working with the Goan Chaplaincy and the Goan Communities in Croydon, Wembley & Southall to raise this money.

As with our previous appeals, we are hoping for a generous response from the Goan Community at large and, in particular from the villagers of Nuvem & Moira. If you feel inclined to help, then please send your donations by cheque to the above address made payable to the Goan Welfare Society UK. If you are a taxpayer, please endorse your cheque on the back “gift aid” and give us your address.

Cash & cheque donations may be handed to any Trustee of the Goan Welfare Society (Flavio Gracias, Paul De Mendonca, Norma Menezes-Rahim, Alfred Rebello & Rosy De Souza) or to Josè Mendes from Southall or Fr Patrick De Souza, the Goan Chaplain in London. You may now make donations by “PayPal” through our website:

May I convey my sincere thanks in advance for your help and would like to convey our best wishes to all for a Happy Easter despite the difficulties brought about by the dreadful Coronavirus.

God bless & keep safe

God bless & keep safe


Flavio Gracias
