38 year old Christchurch man afraid for himself and fellow “streeties”

Earthquake damage, and lack of a place to bed down, has made life on the streets dangerous in Christchurch, New Zealand.

The New Zealand Herald tells of a 38 year old man who has been on the streets since he was 14, but is now afraid to live there.

Streeties needed to be close to social services in the central city, especially the City Mission, but the earthquakes had forced streeties to seek shelter in other suburbs causing them to be unsupported, he said.
