“It upsets me immensely that more than 105,000 people are sleeping rough tonight and every other winter night in Australia. That around 32,000 of those are children makes it harder to accept.
“No matter how many times I do this, it never gets any easier. For people sleeping rough every night, it must be unbearable. What I do know, is that it’s possible to change the situation, which is why I’m literally putting my body on the line to make a difference,” Melina said.

“I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again – as you switch on your heater, climb into your bed or jump into a hot shower, please spare a thought for those who can’t access what we often take for granted”.
