Cast aside by their relatives, who consider them
a burden, Evans and Vitra Rajpaul have now made
their old run-down Nissan Sunny their home.
One month ago, Evans, 53, and his wife of 24 years,
Vitra, 61, packed their meagre belongings into the
car, after their one-room galvanized home, on the
edge of the M2 Ring Road in Picton, collapsed.
Now, all Evans wants is a place to call home for
Christmas and a bed for his wife, a cancer patient,
to lie on comfortably.
"We have no place to go. We spend all day in this
car, looking at each other, quarrelling with each other,"
Rajpaul told the T&T Guardian
"The doctors have given up on my wife. I don t
know how long again she has but I am longing for
a bed for her to stretch her legs and get a good night s
rest. I cry when I hear her moaning with pain."
He explained that he and his wife were evicted
from her family s Tunapuna home seven years ago.
He said his relatives at Picton, Diamond Village, San
Fernando, also turned them away after his wife was
diagnosed with cancer.
Two injuries, one from a fall while working on
a construction site and another from a car accident,
have left Evans incapacitated. He walks with crutches
and is awaiting knee replacement surgery at San Fer-
nando General Hospital next year. He said: "I cannot
work. My wife and I both receive disability grant but
we are willing to pay a small rent."
They have no children.
With tears in his eyes as he sat next to his wife,
Evans said it was humiliating for them
to be begging but it is his last resort.
"I want a better life. My wife and I
park up the vehicle at Palmiste Park
and spend the entire day there. When
it gets dark, I fill up gallons of water
for us to take a bath.
"Then I beg for some hot water to
make some tea for my wife and look
for a secure place to park where we
settle for the night," he added.
He said he had walked up and down
on his injured leg, going from one shel-
ter to another seeking refuge to no avail.
He said he has responded to adver-
tisements for homes for rent, but the
rent was more than they could pay
from their disability grant. He also vis-
ited the office of his MP, Dr Roodal
Moonilal, who is also the Housing Min-
ister, seeking shelter.
Contacted on Tuesday, Moonilal said
he had directed the Housing Develop-
ment Corporation (HDC) to call the
"I have directed HDC to call and ren-
der assistance in conformity with our
emergency shelter policy," he said.
Vitra Rajpaul confirmed: "Someone
from the HDC called my husband and
asked where we were staying. The person promised
to call us back."
In a telephone interview yesterday, Evans said there
was no further contact from the HDC. He said he
and his wife were parked up in their vehicle, which
is not very wholesome, outside Moonilal s office,
hoping someone would bring them good news.
"Rain pouring down here (Debe). We are getting
wet inside this vehicle, please talk to the minister
(Moonilal) to get some help for us," he pleaded.
Evans and Vitra Rajpaul sit in the car they call home on Chancery Lane, San Fernando, on Wednesday outside the T&T Guardian offices.
