We have had new social housing being built opposite our line of townhouses in Auckland and families are just starting to move in. My long time neighbour, 86 years old, three doors along from me for twenty years, has been having heart problems and became dizzy the other week when walking up to the street corner. One of the new neighbours in the new social housing opposite, an older Maori woman who we hadn't yet met, saw her and dashed out to support her. Took her home and waited there two hours for an ambulance. I was phoned by my friend and joined them. She called in the next day with soup for my friend. Lovely person. Works long hours and supports large extended family. Really nice way to connect.
