This gentleman suffered significant childhood trauma. As an adult, he has been homeless for many years, and has suffered from addiction, but is now accessing help and support. Many of his clothes were soiled, due to this addiction, and when staying in a hostel, he temporarily left some there, only to have them disposed of by the hostel. This gentleman is without clothing, a coat or decent footwear. The difficulty he faces, like many others in his situation, is that being street homeless and cold can be dangerous.
