Stories from New Zealand

Throughout The Sudsy Challenge, we will be sharing stories to help shine a light on the issue of homelessness and break down the stigmas. Here are just a few of the people who are part of the Orange Sky community...

Eddie’s Story

We met Eddie in 2018 – he had his own dream to start a free mobile laundry service to help his fellow New Zealanders doing it tough. Lucky for us, he decided to jump on board Orange Sky and be part of our first ever New Zealand Service!

Terry's Story

When we first met Terry he was sleeping on the streets and was doing it pretty tough. We were able to offer him the chance to wash his clothes, have a shower and a great chat.

Elsie's Story

"Calling them homeless to calling them friends, it just completely changes how I view them when I walk past now. Actually they're friends, and if any of my friends were in that situation, I would one of the first people to reach out."

Got a great story to tell?
