Auckland City Missioner calls for support

From Sunday Morning, 7:10 am on 20 December 2015

This week we heard that the child poverty figures had increased steadily over the last decade, and this has also been reflected in the number of parcels the Auckland City Mission has been handing out. A third of families requiring assistance are asking for the first time. Auckland City Missioner Dame Diane Robertson says it is also a crucial time of year for the mission because the organisation itself is under pressure.
