The Hong Kong Slum

Sham Shui Po is Hong Kong’s poorest district with a poverty rate of 18.2 percent.

While living in clustered subdivided homes and having no space for children to do their homework on a decent table may be hard, but under the west Kowloon corridor, between Tung Chau Street Temporary Market and the Tung Chau Street Park, is where over 100 homeless reside for the past 5 years.

People here came from all walks of life. Some are Vietnam refugees, some are middle-aged unemployed and a few are transgenders who are rejected by their family. However, they all have one thing in common – they all struggle for a normal life.

This is the Hong Kong slum.
