Hong Kong based advocacy organization – Society for Community Organization has got a set of pictures that depict the deplorable living conditions of one of the most densely populated cities on earth, from the only vantage point that captures the entire room.
According to the SoCO, over 100,000 people are unable to afford adequate homes. Among them are elderly individuals and other socially vulnerable groups who have no choice but to live in these tiny 40-square-foot rooms.
While the city seems prosperous, many people still live in unacceptable conditions. Residents go about their lives in these confined spaces, sleeping on one corner, eating in another, storing their belongings in a third, and perhaps watching a TV that’s found in a fourth.
