Tens of thousands of children are admitted every year for respiratory and infectious diseases associated with living in damp, overcrowded homes.
When a child grows up in poverty they miss out on things most New Zealanders take for granted.
They are living in cold, damp, over-crowded houses, They do not have warm or rain-proof clothing, their shoes are worn, and many days they go hungry.
Many more don’t get to go to the doctor when they are sick, because they can’t afford the costs of the appointment and the medicine.
Others stay home from school because they don’t have all the uniform or lunch to take.
Car accidents
New Zealand has the highest cannabis use per person in the world.
