“The Wellington Homeless Problem” is a phrase that’s being used a lot at the moment. More & more street people seem to appear to ask for change and sleep rough on our streets. Everyone has an opinion but the streeties themselves are the only ones not being heard. Joining us this week were Zap & A.K, former streeties who now advocate for the current street life. Listen in to hear their take on why some people choose the street, what long term solutions are available and how the public should interact with street beggars.
The Wellington Family Support Hub is a new clinic in Newtown founded by Liora Noy and Dr Rona Carroll. Listen to our interview with Liora to learn about the services that new families can get there. She speaks about breastfeeding, mum’s mental health, and getting dad involved!
Liora also speaks about the challenges for mothers in the refugee camps in Greece. She has been there volunteering as a lactation consultant, and seen first-hand the difficulty these mothers face. You can help support children and mothers in refugee camps here:
