Iris...Struggling on the NZ Streets

For the many international visitors to streetandcityphotos, you'll know New Zealand as a beautiful place. Great food, good bars, great city life, and pretty vistas. But, like many places around the world, there is noticeable gap between those who live well, and those who don't. And in downtown Auckland, our Super city, you will certainly notice it. Iris, has had a broken leg for almost one year. She has had some treatment, but the circumstances of her living environs (aka a cold street), combined with lack of good nutrition, means that her leg isn't healing. It is really quite chronic. These are just one of the many stories of life on the streets in New Zealand. Sadly. Give money to Iris, if you happen to come across her.
