A homeless man has been given a new lease of life after spending years in the streets of New Zealand.
Jason Good was once homeless, living in a tent in the middle of a city street.
But then his life changed when he met Jason Bong, a homeless man from New Zealand, and they started a family.
Jason is now in his 40s, but he is still living in the tent he used to be living in.
“It was just my little life, but now I have this whole family,” he told Al Jazeera.
“I’ve got a big family, we have a big house, we’ve got three dogs.”
My life has been completely transformed.
“Jason and his family are in their 20s now.
They live on a council housing scheme, which allows them to be in a one-bedroom flat for up to five months.”
We don’t want to be homeless, we want to stay here,” he said.”
Our house is nice, we got a good home.
“Jason says he and his wife, Rachel, have made some good friends.
They also love making things and playing guitar.”
They don’t mind people coming over and taking their stuff away. “
I love making stuff.”
They don’t mind people coming over and taking their stuff away.
They’ll say, ‘hey, you’ve got my stuff, I can come over and take it, I’ve got to work’.
“The couple now have two daughters and two grandchildren, and Jason hopes that one day he can share his family’s story and give back to the community.”
This has been a wonderful thing for me, it’s been really good for me,” he explained.”
When we first started this we didn’t have any money, we didn of course get a lot of help from people.
“But we have all grown up, and it’s just changed us a bit.”
