We need your help to provide proper beds and warm bedding for 417 disadvantaged Kiwi kids who are sleeping on the floor or bed-sharing this winter.
From an early age Patrick had suffered respiratory problems that made him unwell and were the cause of many trips to the doctor. When he came to stay with his grandmother Annie last year, he brought with him the asthma and allergies that had seen him hospitalised every year of his young life.
But since he received a Healthy Homes makeover (see below) and a bed from Variety, he hasn’t been admitted to hospital at all.
“It's amazing for Patrick, who is a great little character ... such a clever boy, we are just so grateful and quite overwhelmed.” said Annie.
*Annie and Patrick’s names have been changed to protect their identities.
