Deb Selling The Big Issue on Boundary Street
I was originally going to post this picture with just a few basic details but after I got chatting to Deb, she asked that I include what we talked about in this post...
Deb was abused as a kid by her step father. He and her mother took off when Deb was 18. She has two boys, 7 and 14 years old who live with their father, and she doesn't know where they are. She was late with the rent once and now she can't get a place of her own because she's been black-listed. Having no parents around hasn't helped. She says that she's in the process of getting photo ID... which will make getting her life back on track a lot easier. She's currently staying at the homeless shelter in Roma Street.
If you see her around, buy a Big Issue from her.
