Fujitsu General ANZ’s Managing Director, Philip Perham, will be participating in his fourth Vinnies CEO Sleepout on 17 June 2021, in Sydney Australia.

Spending the night with only a sleeping bag, pillow and some cardboard for comfort and protection, Philip will be joining hundreds of CEOs and business owners at White Bay Cruise Terminal, on chilly Sydney Harbour, to help raise awareness of homelessness.

“Unfortunately, homelessness can affect anyone at any time. The Australian Bureau of Statistics has found that more than 116,000 Australians are experiencing homelessness at the moment. Of these, 60 per cent are under 35 years of age, 44 per cent are women and sadly, 13 per cent are children 12 years and under,” commented Philip.

“Participating in the Vinnies CEO Sleepout is an opportunity for me to raise awareness of this issue and support the St Vincent de Paul Society to achieve its goal of reducing homelessness and poverty.

“Fujitsu General provides Australians and New Zealanders with indoor comfort all year round. Having a bed to sleep in at night in a comfortable and safe home environment should be accessible to everyone.”

Vinnies is determined to help break the cycle of homelessness. Donations to the CEO Sleepout help:

  • fund new initiatives
  • ensure existing homeless services continue, including food vans and emergency support
  • expand the reach of existing programs to ensure every Australian can access accommodation, meals and emergency assistance when they need it.
