Dignity is a human right

Have you seen someone in who is homeless sleeping on the street?

Do you wish they had a portable shelter - Backpack Bed (swag) and a Fire Retardant Sleeping Bag?

Fact. There are not enough shelters and governments ignore the basic human right to shelter and dignity.

In 2019-20 over 82,000 requests for accomodation from homeless people across Australia could not be met (AIHW 2020).

up to 21% of homeless Aussies sleeping on the streets have suffered cold/wet illnesses hypothermia, frostbite or trench foot (MS2H 2011).
