Tammy – Queensland
I fell pregnant in year 7 and had left school by year 8.
I moved here when my dad passed away around 6 years ago. Rent in Victoria was around $280 a week for a 3 bedroom house and here it’s almost double. Just with rent alone, my money is almost gone.
Food parcels really help. They last me and my kids around five days, which is incredible. The charities are amazing. I don’t have to give them a reason to why we need help – they just help us. They know that I’m trying my best for my kids.
