Repatriating Trifonio Cardozo

In conjunction with the GOAN CHAPLAINCY (London)

April 2022


Dear friends

I am appealing to your generosity, as we are trying to raise funds to help with the cost of repatriating Trifonio Cardozo, to his motherland, Goa. Trifonio, who hails from Merces, passed away from heart failure in Swansea, Wales. He leaves behind a widow and a son. Our target is to raise £3,800.00 to defray the costs of repatriation and funeral arrangements.

As with our previous appeals, we are hoping for a generous response from the Community at large but particularly, from the many Merces villagers in the UK. Donations may be made by interbank transfer (see bank details below) or by “PayPal” through our website under the “Donate Now” page:

Alternatively, you may consider the “GoFundMe” initiative, set up by the family and the link is:

Cheque donations may be posted to our registered address below or handed to any Trustee of the GWS (Flavio Gracias, Paul De Mendonca, Norma Menezes-Rahim, Alfred Rebello & Rosy De Souza) or to Fr Patrick De Souza, the Goan Chaplain or Josè Mendes in Southall. Cheques should be made payable to: Goan Welfare Society UK, with your address on the reverse.

May I convey my sincere thanks for your help and our best wishes for a peaceful summer! God bless & keep safe

God bless & keep safe
