Good news from Down Under

New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern just launched a $100 million emergency housing plan. It pulls out all the stops to support people in need and urgently increase housing supply this winter. "Our government will make sure EVERYONE IS HELPED to find warm, dry housing," he said.

Now is the cold season in the southern hemisphere, and the government intends to get the country's 40,000 homeless people into proper shelters, housing and facilities. Ardern explained, "We acknowledge this is an emergency. We couldn't stand by and see people sleeping in cars or completely unsuitable housing."
