Auckland is home to Orange Sky New Zealand’s first ever service, which was launched on World Homeless Day on October 10, 2018. With a second bright orange van hitting the streets of Auckland in November 2021, there are now two services supporting the Auckland community.

Meet Hugo: 

Our first van ‘Hugo’ is a hybrid laundry and shower van and is named after the Hugo Charitable Trust, who generously supported the launch of our first New Zealand service! 

The Hugo Charitable Trust was established in May 2017 by Maryanne Green, the eldest daughter of New Zealand/Irish philanthropist and businessman the late Hugh Green, known in Ireland as Hugo. Maryanne set up the Hugo Charitable Trust to continue Hugh’s philanthropic legacy of giving back to the people of New Zealand. The Hugo Charitable Trust is proud to be Orange Sky New Zealand’s inaugural van partner.

The Ministry of Housing and Urban Development also supported Orange Sky’s first year of operational costs, allowing us to expand across Auckland and reach thousands of people currently doing it tough.

Meet Whaea Debz:

Whaea Debz is also a hybrid laundry and shower van and joined the New Zealand family in November 2020 to launch our third service!

Simplicity Charitable Trust has generously funded the launch of our third service in New Zealand and are extremely proud to work alongside the Auckland community and Orange Sky to support those doing it tough.

Whaea Debz operates in the Auckland area, expanding our availability in the region to meet the significant demand.
