The handicampers community in New Zealand is experiencing an unprecedented increase in homelessness in the last year, with a quarter of homeless people living on the streets.
With a shortage of available places, New Zealanders have been forced to resort to using handicamps as a means of survival, with the majority of people living in the country’s south having lost their homes.
The trend is now so widespread that many people have lost their jobs and been unable to afford housing in the capital.
Handicamp is now a national movement, and now New Zealand has seen a boom in the popularity of handicamping.
A study last year showed that the popularity and popularity of this form of community living was on the rise, with many of those in New York City and Sydney who used handicaps finding they could no longer afford to live in their own homes.
Handicamps are a highly organised form of alternative housing in New South Wales and are a major way people can survive the harsh winters in the New South West.
New Zealand is home to around 30,000 people who have handicapped, a population that has doubled since 2011.
But in a country where more than half the population lives in poverty, handicap living is not just an option for those on the street.
While there are some who are able to access affordable housing, many others find themselves unable to because of the high cost of living in New Britain.
In 2015, a New Zealand handicapper was killed when he was hit by a car in Wellington while on a handicam walk.
This month, the state government announced a new initiative aimed at making handicams more accessible to the homeless.
It will provide a $10,000 grant to help handicappers purchase new equipment for their homes and to help homeless people with their everyday activities.
Many people have also taken to social media to share stories of how they have found handicamped communities to survive on.
“This is just what I needed.
I had no idea what I was getting myself into.
It’s been a really good learning experience,” said one woman, who has been living on handicamas since 2014.
As New Zealand faces an unprecedented rise in homelessness, it is clear that the handicapping movement is growing in popularity.
