Plea from mosque shooting victim: find me a home

From Morning Report, 7:20 am on 13 March 2020

One of those badly injured in the mosque attacks is worried he and his young family will have nowhere affordable to live, once their temporary accommodation runs out in less than two months.

Officials say they are trying to find Mohammad Sahadat and his family a suitable private rental and they'll be allowed to stay where they are until that happens.

The one year anniversary of the massacre that saw the loss of 51 lives, is this Sunday.

But as Conan Young reports, life for the survivors remains a struggle.

A statement from MSD says Mohammad Sahadat and his family will be allowed to stay in their temporary accommodation until a suitable private rental is found.

MSD says he has been taken to 11 private rental viewings and another two have been arranged for next week, which MSD hopes he will be well enough to attend.

It says the family have a dedicated MSD case manager who is working alongside them.
